Thank you Paula

To do this, please do the following

Click the gear wheel in the top right in Internet Explorer then click Manage add-ons.

In the Manage Add-ons window that appears, highlight Toolbars and Extensions under 'Add-on Types'.

Under the 'Show:' drop-down menu, make sure All add-ons is selected.

Highlight the toolbar you wish to remove, and select Disable.

A window may pop up to warn you that related services and add-ons will also be disabled. If such a window does appear, leave those items checked and click OK.

Click Close to dismiss the add-ons window.

Repeat this for all the Toolbars you wish to remove.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
