Yahoo With New Browser Plus Plug-in

In the midst of all the acquisition wars, Yahoo continues to offer new products, like Yahoo Life( streaming video), Yahoo Buzz ( social bookmarking)

This time the search engine started a web browser plug-in called Yahoo Browser Plus. With the new software customers will have "richer experience on the internet" and "do more inside their web browsers by installing and using "web plugins".

The new Browser Plus plug-in can only be used with Yahoo sites and will have the ability to work offline and sync all your files, once it is back online. For more details read the Daily Bits blog.

    Usually big companies test extensively before they put products on the market.You can always uninstall the product from your PC if anything goes wrong.

    clickydocgirl writes:Sorry Stan, but I've read the same comments you're making all over the interweb. Doesn't work.I have a big problem with stuff that downloads onto my computer and then does NOT go away when I tell it to. This program has been deliberately designed so the average user cannot uninstall it, whether they want it or not. I don't care how useful a program is, this really p***es me off, on principle.Forums give the usual answers that you can use the BrowserPlus's own Uninstall feature (you can't – it doesn't work!), or that you can re-install and use Add/Remove Programs (you can't – it doesn't work!), or that you can delete the folder easily (the installation process is such that the folder does not appear in the Program Files – instead it is tucked away in the hidden files on the user profile it was installed under). These are the answers on the forums I’ve checked so far, and I think they’ve been posted by Yahoo.So to delete this, I had to go longwinded because I’m stubborn and don't know much about computers:1) Go to Explorer, click on ToolsFolder OptionsView, and select Show Hidden Files And Folders2) Go to C:Documents and Settings*****Local SettingsApplication Data (where ***** is your user name). 3) Delete the Yahoo! folder.4) Go to C:WINDOWSPrefetch, and delete all the folders which start with BrowserPlus (careful here, you don’t want to delete anything inconvenient).5) Go to C:Documents and Settings*****Local SettingsTemp, run a search for BrowserPlus and delete these files.I think this should do it. Anyone who knows more about computers can maybe think of a simpler way.

    From Yahoo Help:<http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/browserplus/uninstall.html;_ylt=Ahzj78e39dixsT7L_lrwCWpYzSZ4> The uninstallation process depends on your operating system: For Mac OSX Run (or double click on) the script in your home folder. It is located at Applications/Yahoo!/BrowserPlus/UninstallBrowserPlus.sh. Under Windows (XP or Vista), there is an uninstaller located in your "My Documents" folder, under My DocumentsYahoo!BrowserPlus. Regardless of the operating system, the uninstaller will remove every trace of BrowserPlus from your system, including previous versions and any settings or preferences that have been set while you've used BrowserPlus™ powered sites.Thanks Stan
