"Adding Yahoo Toolbar and you ad tons of pop-up Adware"

February 23, 2014  |  By mazdaman7q

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar with Anti Spyware 7.1

Pros

Personalize bookmarks that you can access from any PC.

Add custom shortcut buttons (even make ones to web sites not normally available)

Cons

SPAM SPAM SPAM!!

Funny how the pop up blocker won't work when it's Adware they install along with the toolbar.

Does NOT give you option to NOT have Adware installed.

Summary

This used to be a great toolbar until they suddenly added all of this Adware that pops up everywhere... very annoying to have to close windows and close and close again (2 or 3 for every window)

I guess this explains why the pop up blocker won't work on all these pop up adware windows since it's source is the Yahoo toolbar.

I even did an uninstall and reinstall to make sure no boxes checked or I didn't inadvertently agree to their Adware and sure enough, didn't agree to this spam, yet it's there when I run the toolbar, and gone when I do an uninstall.

To summarize, DO NOT install this toolbar unless you don't mind tons of pop up windows trying to get you to buy from other than the site you are surfing.

This is pretty low Yahoo!!

Yahoo toolbar WAS great,however AVG secure search took over as search engine, plus many add-ons I had unchecked were added anyway, uninstalled toolbar to stop AVG and add-ons,now I have to use Bing toolbar. Yahoo did themselves and us a great disservice with this A/V toolbar.
