I'm trying to build something to remove all hotbars, Googlebars, Yahoo etc.
I'm still new to the package building. Can some please point me in the correct direction.
Should I also run a scan to find out which machines are running bars first?
If so how would I do that

Remove unwanted Toolbars in Internet Explorer


Sometime, downloading a software from the web will add it's own toolbars onto the Internet Explorer browser. For example, Real player, msn messenger, yahoo messenger etc.,

These toolbars can be disabled or deleted from the registry.

These toolbar extensions are saved as subkeys in the registry at,

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions\]

Once in, you can see a list of extensions,

To permanently remove the extension simply delete the subkey. If you would like to disable the feature for the while then you simply rename the key with a "-" sign in the front.

For example, for MSN messenger, the extension key is "{FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683}" and all you need to do is to rename it as "-{FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683}".
