The Yahoo Toolbar. Not very useful in my opinion. Just something to clutter your toolbar.

smile.gif Actually, there are some uses to the Yahoo Toolbar. The pop-up blocker has caught pop-ups others miss. Yahoo Anti-Spy also detects malware periodically. I also like the shortcut to Yahoo Mail, because I do not have Yahoo as my start page. Additionally, I have noticed that the Yahoo Toolbar causes no problems with IE 6.0, nor my ISP software.

One other feature that is somewhat useful is the bookmarks feature which lets you capture links on the fly. Assuming you have a Yahoo account (if you don't the toolbar is pretty useless I guess) with your links in yahoo you can get to them in any browser by signing in to yahoo. Most other browser bookmark features require you to type in the html and description by hand.

smile.gif pamur, you are quite correct. The Yahoo Toolbar cannot be downloaded or accessed unless you have a Yahoo Account. Not a difficult thing to do, just go for a secondary email account, which is what I did. You get a 1 gigabyte Inbox for free members, and for just under $20.00 a year (automatically billed), you get a 2 gigabyte Inbox with tons of additional extras! AddressGuard is a great option. I can create as many alias email addresses as I desire to help protect my real account from spammers.

smile.gif For everyone that uses the Yahoo Toolbar: I just received an email about the compatibility of older versions of the Toolbar with IE 7.0 and the Yahoo Mail Beta. It contained a link to download the latest version. This way you should be OK whenever IE 7.0 is posted for download.

smile.gif I have some sad news to report today. The application "Yahoo Anti-Spy" no longer exists. sad.gif I downloaded the latest Yahoo Toolbar just a little while ago, and the Installer File deleted Yahoo Anti-Spy because it has been replaced with a Norton (Symantec) anti-spyware product.

Please don't misunderstand my following comments, as I am not - repeat - am not trying to start any debates. Since I have been using Prevx's cyber security program, I have been a member of their parent company, which afforded me access to their Real-Time Threat Monitor, and a listing of how much malware gets past each of the major anti-virus software companies, to include Prevx.

The Norton anti-spyware application was installed onto my hard drive along with the Toolbar, and I immediately deleted both the Norton files and their Registry entries. Reason: Prevx has proven that more malware gets past Norton than McAfee. Besides, Norton & McAfee would have caused a conflict, as they are not compatible with each other anyway.

I personally do not have any problems with Norton, but I wanted the best, and McAfee (backed up by Prevx) is just about the best. It may not be the best, but whatever McAfee misses, Prevx immediately picks up, so I am double-protected.

All I am doing is just relating what happened to Yahoo Anti-Spy and what I did after I found that out.
