1388. Strange toolbars appearing. Why?

I'm seeing a strange AOL toolbar in Firefox, and I'm sure I didn't install it. How did it get there, and can I get rid of it?

Believe it or not I still have relatives that are using AOL and probably use the AOL toolbar but I'm guessing Doug that you are not one of those people.

In any case it's easy to get things installed as you browse the web unless you're paying careful attention. In this case is easy to remove the AOL toolbar. It's just an extension of your browser and every browser allows some sort of extensions to be added. Every browser allows you to uninstall those extensions. You should be able to find on the tools menu or something like it for your browser an  option to look at extensions and uninstall them. 

If you can't find it search the web for your browser name and "uninstall extension".  And you should be able to easily remove that AOL toolbar.
