Question by rainy d: How can I uninstall a “zwinky” toolbar from my internet browser?
My daughter accidentally installed this zwinky toolbar. I can’t see it in my “Add/remove programs” place.

Search for a tool called Spybot Search&Remove. It’s free and quite reliable – download, update and run. It *might* fix your problem.
If that doesn’t work and assuming your operating system is what I think it is, look for a tool called Hijackthis.exe – it will allow you to deactivate individual plug-ins in your browser. IF not sure what is what, submit your hijackthis log to one of the forums discussing the issue and ask for help – you will generally get a more reliable answer than here.
Last thing – you might have to do the above in Safe Mode if zwinky proves to be very resilient. Good luck!
