A week or so ago, I installed yahoo messenger... I had a specific reason for doing so that only needed it to be on my system for a couple of days. Anyway... I then decided to uninstall it and bring my system back to normal. However I now find it has put itself in the view menu... explorer bar and also in the tools menu of Internet Explorer. Why do programs do this and then don't remove these remnants when uninstalled. Is there a way I can manually remove these items myself. I'm very happy to edit the registry... I just need to be pointed where.
