Can't remove the Yahoo! Search toolbar (Vista OS)

\015 I have a new Compaq (HP) Presario with Vista. I am unable to remove the Yahoo! Search toolbar. I try and use Google as my default, and remove Yahoo! Search, but it never stays that way. I used regedit and removed what I thought was the Yahoo! Search toolbar, now my default is nothing, but that stupid y!s toolbar is still listed as a choice. It is not in my Control Panel/Programs & Features/Uninstall list either. I read that it may be in HP Advisor, but I am having no luck finding it. Help me remove this troublesome toolbar.\015

Answers :

It's an Internet exporer Add-on!!!
\015\012So Just disable it in IE (Internet Explorer)
\015\012Also In September, Upgrade from Vista (****)
\015\012To WINDOWS 7 (Awesome!)
\015\012Windows 7 is more secure, faster, more user friendly, more powerfull, and uses less resources than VISTA........
\015\012Windows 7 is far more stable too.
If you are using firefox browser then you need to go to
tools-> addons-> plugins and then in that find yahoo! search toolbar and uninstall it.

for internet explorer
tools->manage addons->enable or disable addons-> disable or remove the yahoo search addon.
