When using Internet Explore, I suddenly noticed some smileys on my toolbar.
I tried to remove it on the toolbars option, but nothing happens.
The other thing is that it leaves a link or smileys on everything I do online like on e-mails and blog comments.
How to remove this?
Internet Explorer Problem with Smileys
Hi James Charest,
It’s a very common problem nowadays, because people tend to install illegitimate software without knowing what’s coming with it. These illegal software, most of times, are tied with an Adware or in other words it’s a kind of ad placer in your browser which keeps annoying you while you’re browsing.
You’re being the victim of that adware at this moment. So, you must try to remove this by following one of the tips written below:
1. Try upgrading your IE browser to the newest version available by Microsoft. This will ensure the easy removal of such toolbars in future.
2. Open Internet Explorer. Go to Tools and click on manage add-ons. Here in this menu disable each and every add-on installed in the browser. It is to ensure that any add on may not be able to conflict if it were conflicting.
3. Now, go to Control Panel
XP Users :
