I recently downloaded an installed Alcohol 52%. It made some changes to Internet Explorer that I did not ask for nor want. It changed the defaults on my search engine - that I was able to change back. However, it also installed a "gadget" or toolbar of some kind to the left of the Search bar. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to get rid of the damn thing! I've tried right-clicking it to see if there's a "delete" option - I've tried going into Toolbar Options, which doesn't show this thing.

What's the secret for getting rid of it?????

Me too just made a reinstall of alcohol 120% and somehow I now got this lame alcohol soft toolbar installed and without having been asked for it.
How do I uninstall this damn thing!?

I can't find it in my add/remove program. Do I really have to uninstall the whole software? But then again I can't use alcohol 120 anymore because obviosly one is forced to use this toolbar?!

Bear in mind that the toolbar is simply a search engine component for Alcohol's game database. It does not monitor your web browsing habits or popup ads on your system.

I know now this is an old thread but is there no way of browsing the protection database without having to install the Browser addin?
