    "FORCED INSTALL OF YAHOO TOOLBAR IN FIREFOX, IE, AND OPERA!"

    July 8, 2008  |   By the2ndfloodofgod

    Pros

    These people will come out with updates in what seems like every few days. You can turn off the update notice, but it never stays off. This is part of the scam. Because each time you install FLV Player, Yahoo's worthless tool bar is installed as well. It will invest in Firefox, IE and Opera. So you have to uninstall it from all 3 browsers! Then when you update the software, you have to do this all over again!! Don't waste your time! Free doesn't mean good!! There is 10 times better software out there! Yahoo is getting out of control with pushing this tool bar down our throats! In the same way AOL did back in the 90's. Remember what happen to AOL Yahoo? Keep it up and you will suffer the same fate!
