    You did it right. You are referring to the incredibar toolbar that your seeing in your browser? If you look in the add/remove programs panel you should see Incredibar listed. You can uninstall it from there if you havent already.

    Default Incredibar already deleted

    I have already deleted Incredibar a couple of weeks ago, since deleting my incredimail wont send or receive and my internet explorer keeps stopping and reloads page and stops again. It is a real pain to use and PC is 1 month old

    Removing the incredimail toolbar shouldnt have any effect on the email client. For internet explorer you can try setting it back to its defaults. With IE open tools>internet options>advanced tab>reset. May be slightly different in W8

    Your running windows 8, I found this on there web site:

    "At the moment only the IncrediMail 2.5 version is compatible with Windows 8.

    Please note that IncrediMail 2.5 is a beta version so there are still some issues."

    source: http://support.incredimail.com/home

    A different email client may be a better option in more ways than one.

    Default Windows 8 Incredibar HijakersC

    I got impatient when I couldn't use internet without it stopping and restarting constantly or email send or receive and had someone want something I'm selling on craigslist only to find I was getting my own out mail in my in box. My home page keeps changing to blank.com This morning I started reading all posts looking for someone with a similar pc and problem, the first 2 things I downloaded worked but it had a 3rd download and my spybot I paid for poped up even though the program told me to disable all anti virus temporarily to avoid a conflick, well the third 1 got me again but spybot cleaned up most of it. now my internet is working and I already have 2.5 on incredimail which I paid a sub for. It is now working again after what I did this morning. My internet explorer is infected with incredibar hijackersC spybot now shows 3 instead of 7 in scanning and shows a red x. Sorry I did not wait but I need my pc Im a disabled vet and need for my healthy vet access my meds and appointments. I have been waiting for quite awhile and do appreciate any help. I ran adwcleaner and JRT and now wish I had stopped there. As I already did this 1x and it restored most of my functions, at least now I can use this pc, I am going to run them 1 more time just not the 3rd 1 which I deleted. I will inform you of my results. I did not try to run erunt as my operating system is not listed, win 8 PC is 1 .5 months old Thank you very much and I am sure I will still need you. I got infected from Cnet codec download even though I unchecked all add ons.

    My home page keeps changing to blank.com
    did you go to the web page that you want to use as your "start" page, open IE: tools, click "use current" then click: "apply", "ok".
    Its probably set to blank. Incredimail install also resets your home page during the install as well as adding the toolbar in IE.

    Default Spybot 2.1 says it cannot repair 7 Incredibar HijackersC

    I still have this problem although now I can use email and internet explorer isn't freezing at the moment but spybot scan says it cannot remove. I have the anti-virus version also I used ADWcleaner, it helped the most, this time though JRT froze at checking registry and sat there for 2.5 hours, so I closed it and updated spybot, immunized 233 more entries and am rescanning
