Is it listed at all if you go to your View menu and select Toolbars?

If all you want to do is make it disappear from the header on your screen:

- Got to View in the menu bar
- Click Toolbars
- Remove the check mark from in front of the Yahoo toolbar

I have that, I want it off the computer, not just hidden.

Might check in your Windows Control Panels, the one that's marked 'Add/Remove Programs', and see if it's listed there. 

(I hate the way so many programs try to get me to install some new toolbar.)

Oniya, it isn't listed in the add/remove as a yahoo toolbar..
that's the whole problem  :-(

I found this out on the web (you may have the Extensions menu item right off of Tools - FF4 has it off of Add-ons instead.)

    Click the "Tools" menu in the Firefox browser.
    Click on "Add-ons"
    Click the "Extensions" menu item.
    In the Extensions Manager window scroll until you find the Yahoo! Toolbar extension.
    Click the Yahoo! Toolbar extension.
    Click "Uninstall".
    Click "OK" in the "Uninstall Yahoo! Toolbar" window.
    Exit Extensions Manager and restart your browser.

Just a thought, have you checked if you can remove it with CCleaner?
Asides that, I use Revo uninstaller for things that just do not want to get installed. (It's free)

thanks Oniya, that's what we found too,
none of that shows on our side of the screen.
it is my sisters computer, she has vista, I don't.
it is nerve wracking to say the least.
thank you

we have, tried, Saerra.. it doesn't show up.
I am thinking her computer is more messed up than I or anyone can help with.
I am at the point of believing she deleted something, she should not have.

I truly appreciated everyone's help.

thanks

I may be beating a dead horse but here's a link to the Yahoo questions forum where you might find some help.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100810165923AANQ0WL

There are two links in the answer but also some other links to the right in a sidebar.
