I erroneously (& stupidly) downloaded & installed a program called "inbox" which has proven to be a Windoze program. It is a toolbar that has replaced my Yahoo toolbar and I can't figure out how to uninstall it. Any idea's?

If it's a Windows program, you cannot install it on a Mac..where did you download it from?

That's what I thought too but it loaded and seemed to be working. I didn't like it so tried to uninstall and the only instructions are for windows. It did go in - now I want it out.... but, how?
I downloaded it from an add on the internet!

What browser?

Will assume firefox - far as I know a firefox plugin is the only way you can install this thing on a Mac.

Open Firefox -Tools - Add-ons - Extensions - click the button to remove it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
