Comments on incredibar

works perfectly.. thank you!
thank you so much this has been driving m crazy forever and your tips are the first to ever stop it from going especially the last part about reseting what mystart changed. im in your debt.
Akari (not my real name of coarse but hey!)
Its gone... BY JINGO ITS GONE!
You may also disable all at once by going to your start page, going to incredibar, and deleting that, and deleting its updater. The updater would re-install the whole thing.
Has anyone seen a difference in incredibar since the new Google AdSense policy changes on Feb. 1? Is it easier/hard to install/uninstall and is there more/less advertising on the search toolbar?
Manual removal for Firefox worked like a charm! Also ran a utilities program (TuneUp Utilities, in my case) to clear all the startup and other stuff this IncrediCrap installed.
I SO SO love you for this.
i did everything still when i restart chrome and try to search something it still uses this terrible incredibar! even tough i removed it in the setteing over and over again!
Thanks for the info..this incredibar thing is very annoying..I got rid of it ...thank you
thanks! was helpful
I was removing IncrediBar [more like IncrediCRAP] and remembered to check Chrome.
Under "Extensions", I found "IB Updater".
That is also "IncrediBar" for Chrome.
Hopefully helpful.
Have a GREAT day, neighbors!

Always delete your browsing history and change your password to E-mail account about once a month and remember to write down your new password on a piece of paper and put it where you can find it, make sure use passwords with a combination of numbers and letters!

Mr. Dinesh, dont become a fool by posting this. Suspect your connection with incredebar tool bar people.
