Hotbar-good, bad or ugly??

  1. Just wondering, does anyone have the "hotbar" toolbar on
    their browser? If so, do you like it?

    It uhh, accidentally got downloaded onto my browser....
    (like I've said before, I am computer illiterate!)

    It does seem to have some cool options on it, but I just wanted
    some feedback. I did a BB search,but nothing came up.

    Thanks for any input you may have.

    If you don't hear back from me, it's because I accidentally
    blew up my computer!!!!!!:imbar

    Yep, I have it, for the email options--emoticons, ecards etc since I use outlook express for my email. I like it

    I've been using Hotbar for a long time and like it. Never had a problem with it.

    I use hotbar, I like the email graphics. I shut the toolbar portion off, so that I don't have to see the adds it finds.

    Is hotbar that bar that has "links" which are basically ads for the web pages you visit?

    I have it, would like to rid of it. How do I that? (if the article by sunnygirl says it, I'm going to read it later, off to work soon.)

    Finally, a question I can answer. I'm not sure yet on how to
    give you a direct link, but it's http://downloads/HBUninst.exe
    That's going to download the uninstaller for the hotbar, then
    just follow the directions. If this doesn't help you, just e.mail
    Hotbar tech support at support@hotbar.com They will get
    back to you in a couple days.

    I don't think you can get rid of it once it is on unless you buy some program to do it.

    Renerian, I did get rid of it! Did you read my above post?? And believe me, If I can do it, ANYBODY can!! Thanks for replying
    though. This started out as a thread asking if anyone likes the
    Hotbar, but I decided in the meantime to remove mine.

    Woot! You Rock! Thanks. I'll try it when I get home. (I'm at work right now doing extensive research that will benefit the care of my patients. )
