Thread: Yahoo Toolbar

  1. #1

    Default Yahoo Toolbar

    Hi, I'm looking for an older release of the Yahoo! toolbar. Here is the information:

    Program Name: Yahoo! Companion Toolbar
    Website: http://companion.yahoo.com/
    Current version:
    Desired versions: 5.2.x.x
    Description: This is a toolbar for IE. I'm looking for a older version which does not have the pop-up blocker feature.

    I was unable to find an installation file for the older versions of the Yahoo Companion Toolbar. But, if you're desperate and/or you consider yourself an advanced user, you can try this:

    First, download one of the following files:



    Next perform the following steps:

    1. If you haven't installed the toolbar yet, install it.
    2. You can download an installation file for the lastest version from Zdnet using this link: ftp://ftp.download.com/pub/ppd/10032606-1...tup_cnetPPD.exe
    3. Close Internet Explorer.
    4. Perform a file search and locate the file ycomp5_3_16_0.dll ( Note: the file may have different numbers following "ycomp" depending on the version you have installed.).
    5. The file ycomp5_3_16_0.dll is typically located in one of the following directories: "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files" or "C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\Installs \cpn".
    6. Rename ycomp5_3_16_0.dll to ycomp5_3_16_0.bak.
    7. Copy one of the older file versions you downloaded above to the same directory where you found ycomp5_3_16_0.dll.
    8. Rename the older file to ycomp5_3_16_0.dll.

    If all goes well, you should now have the older version of the toolbar when you restart Internet Explorer.

    Good luck!

    I'm looking for a version of Yahoo! Companion before they added the pop-up blocker. I use Avant browser and Companion has not worked since I updated to the version with the blocker.

    Default Old Reliable Yahoo toolbar

    I came to this site in an attempt to find help to remove the new yahoo anti-spy tool bar and replace the old toolbar which worked like a charm. I have no idea what i can do and have never participated in something like this. The old toolbar anti-spy was very efficient and easy to use. I used it daily. The new toolbar has a Norton trial program and doesnt work at all. Now my system is getting bogged down with spyware. Any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated. I would surely like to contact the Yahoo People and let them know how badly the decision to change toolbars has affected so many.
    Thank you!

    How do I remove Yahoo! Toolbar for Mozilla Firefox?

    How do I remove Yahoo! Toolbar for Internet Explorer?

    use the Pencil menu "Uninstall" it will give you a chance to com/ex-plain to Yahoo about why you're uninstalling the toolbar.

    Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall any Yahoo or Norton entries you dont want.

    usally a good place to start is at the softwares support forums
