    Alright, this has been going on for some time now. The problem is that when I am searching the web with Firefox I get ton of pop ups and adds through Internet Explorer. I downloaded Google tool bar for internet explorer to try and block them but they still get through. How can I fix this.

    P.S. I don't need nor use internet explorer.

    Is it possible to just uninstall Internet Explorer? I can't find it in the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. Maybe it can work if you delete the program files then run a registry cleaner to get rid of anything left.

    How to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

    Luckily, you can remove IE7 from your Windows XP PC using Control Panel's "Add/Remove Programs." Nice to know it's not more permanently glommed onto Windows' innards.
