Default Google toolbar

This is peculiar.

XPpro. I had the Yahoo toolbar and the Google tool bar.

Opening "My Yahoo" I could not get my "Bookmarks" into the left hand column of the Yahoo opening oage,

As soon as I uninstaled Google toolbar, then immediately all my
Bookmarks arrived normally and the main opening page widened.

Is there a fix within the Google toolbar, please.?

I don't know of a fix, but the two toolbars will conflict with each other. Best to use only one. My kids had about 4 and nothing worked. They each wanted to be the main toolbar and it was a mess. I suggest picking one and going with it. Simplify.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

A typical infected computer has about 4 of them. Don't use IE.

Thank you.

Since the demise of the stand alone BT-Yahoo browser I have had to use the Yahoo toolbar which opens in IE6/7 as does MSN.
I do use Netscape 8.1 but there is no UK version yet.

As far as infection is concerned I have Norton a/v, Windows Defender, Ad-Aware SE and Xoftspy SE.

The latter comes up with 19 Power Spy registry keys described as Severe Risk, but after deletion, several programs would not open and I had to do a system restore to get back to sanity,
