Not only does Yahoo offer a free email service, online personal ads, a question and answer service, a search engine and lots of other features, but now there is also a yahoo toolbar you can download which not only has the normal functions of the toolbar, meaning it simplifies your searches, and provides a pop up blocker, but this yahoo toolbar also has a spyware removal tool. The Yahoo toolbar can be found at Here you can download the toolbar and optionally download the new FoxyTunes music add on. This FoxyTunes music add on lets you manage what music you're listening to directly from your web browser and works with over 30 media players. But back to the actual Yahoo toolbar. After you install the toolbar, after it's been downloaded, you'll be able to use its spyware protection function to scan your computer and get rid of any spyware you have. Before you do this you'll want to update the definitions of it of course. And then you'll also be able to use it to stop you from getting new spyware in the future. Other functions of the toolbar include notifying you of new Yahoo email and blocking pop ups as well.
