How to Delete AOL From Internet Explorer

America Online (AOL) has a toolbar that you can add to your Internet browser. If you added AOL to Internet Explorer, you have access to the AOL search engine and AOL email. If you no longer have any use for this toolbar and want to remove AOL from Internet Explorer, it takes little time to do so.

      Click the "Disable" button to remove AOL from Internet Explorer. Verify that you want to remove AOL from the box that opens. AOL will no longer appear on Internet Explorer.

Tips & Warnings

  • After you remove AOL from Internet Explorer, you may want to delete it from your computer as well. Open the Control Panel and select "Add or Remove Programs" (Windows XP) or "Programs and Features" (Windows 7 and Vista). Select "AOL Toolbar" when the programs list open and click "Remove." This will save a little space on your hard drive.
