Yahoo search can be removed either through the Windows Control Panel or through the add-ons or extensions feature in the Internet browser. The Yahoo toolbar and search feature is often bundled with other installed software.
Windows computers offer a Control Panel feature, which includes a listing of all programs installed on the machine. Once the Uninstall Programs button is selected, the Yahoo search toolbar can be found in the displayed list. The toolbar, Yahoo updates and other related programs should be selected for removal to ensure the toolbar is completely removed.
The search toolbar may also appear as the primary choice for searching on internet browsers. Deleting the Yahoo search toolbar from browser add-ons or extensions will remove it from Internet Explorer and other browsers.
