PC Decrapifier problem

I can't win for losing !!! I finally decide to use a program I've read so much about & it turns around & bites me in the butt! It found one, gave me the option to read comments so clicked there & up pops a screen telling me I had the wrong browser to view them! What gives?

Sorry, I'm so flustered about it that I didn't think to explain better. I did download decrapifier & ran it, it found the BingBar but I wanted to read others comments before I deleted it. I just closed out at that point so don't even know if the scan was done. Does it work just one program at a time? I expected to see several listed.

No it's suppose to locate more . You could uninstall Bing Toolbar from Uninstall inside the control panel .

Click on type Programs and features and press ENTER on the keyboard . Once you get to the uninstall Window choose Bing Tool bar and click uninstall .

Again, I missed saying that the reason for my 1st post was that it was telling me that I had the WRONG BROWSER but as my shot shows, I DO have IE 9.
Actually, somewhere in the back of my mind I have seen some other screen tell me that I have something other than IE, seems like it was Netscape or something to do with Mozilla. ???

The report is telling you that BING BAR only works with Internet explorer and if you are using another browser you can choose to remove it or not.

okeedokee, so the best way to do away with BingBar is to go to the list of Installed Programs thru Control Panel which is what PC Decrapifier would do anyway?

I'm not sure if I should be glad or disappointed that PCD only found the one? I am surprised tho', because I don't remember removing too much from my PC when I first got it mid Feb of last year.

I am wanting to clean up this machine & thought PCD would be a good starting point, guess I was wrong so will uninstall it along with Bing Bar.

Thanks LB, right off the top of my head would be: PC Decrapifier & Defraggler(Piriform) which I installed, then Silverlight which has just been sitting here with a date of 3/31/11.

I bought this machine new (or so I thought) mid Feb. last year & find lots of things listed in Programs with install dates of 2011, with no dates listed for 'last used', or anything else.

Back on any UNinstalls, I'm just a bit leary due to the mess I had after my uninstall of SuperAdBlocker ( which I posted about here in the board somewhere). I'm not sure if I should uninstall from Programs in Control Panel, check to see if the 2 I installed have their own uninstaller, or should I install Revo?

Sorry, didn't mean to ramble on so much.

No problem ramble if you must.
The way I would do it if it was my computer would be use Revo when I could. My next choice would be Ccleaner. They both do a very good job.
Programs like Decrapifier & Defraggler I wouldn't use but that is my personal choice. I use Silverlight on Microsoft's web sites. The point is you have to decide what you want to remove we can only give guidance.
If you haven't got Ccleaner go here.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

Under Tools it will give you a list of programs and it's able to remove them if you so desire to.

*****FARE WARNING******

Unless you are very knowledgeable with Windows 7 registry I don't recommend using the registry part of Ccleaner.
