Google Installs Ugly, Black, Tool Bar. I Want It GONE. How Do I Do It?

Well, Google is at it again. All of a sudden, without my ever asking for it, there is this ugly, BLACK band (toolbar) running across my screen, just below my other toolbars. It was not there a week ago, I never asked for it, it looks like hell and I DON'T WANT IT THERE ANY MORE.

I'm sure, if you have Google as your home page, you have it too. Doesn't it suck?

To further identify it, it has Web, Images, Video, Maps, News, Shopping, GMail and More listed in there.

How do I get rid of it? I went into Control Panel/Uninstall Programs. It isn't in there. (BTW, I am running Firefox, not IE.) I went into Tools/Manage Add Ons. It isn't in there. I went onto the Web, asking how to delete a Google tool bar. Nothing helped.

So how do I get rid of it?

Haha, I was just looking at that today also. I didn't like it either, ROFL. I don't know how to fix it, or if we can, sorry, I'll wait to watch for more replies too

Thanks, L.K.! This looks like it will probably get the job done. One thing, however. At WORK, I am running IE and they won't let me download anything onto my work computer. Is there any fix that doesn't involve downloading anything?

At home (Firefox), no problem, of course - I will attend to that this evening.

Thanks again.

George, when you right click on the toolbar does it bring up an option to unclick it? That's how I got rid of the Norton toolbar. Just a thought. . . .

It's worth noting, that during almost the exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.

Fate punishing you for running IE. Chrome won't let anyone do that kind of stupid.

Amazing Google is doing this. These toolbars don't ever seem to get used by anyone, but they cause a huge amount of resentment.

And they breed like crazy. One of the reasons I mostly run Mac. It is not subject to this stupid.
