mybrowserbar.com: How to remove the replacement 404 page from your Web browser after installing PDFCreator

PDFCreator is a free PDF printer and converter that you can download from Sourceforge. It does have a catch though: When you install it, it also installs something called “PDFForge Toolbar” which takes over when any page you try to visit gives you a 404 Not Found error and redirects you to a page of content generated by mybrowserbar.com.

To stop this from happening, in Windows, go to Control Panel |Add/Remove Programs and uinstall pdfforgetoolbar.

  1. I am using also Pdf creator for a long time and I am very pleased of the program.
    Also i have recently installed version 0.9.7 of the software with the browser toolbar component.
    I think that this toolbar it is very useful to search anything, on yahoo, ebay and amazon.
    It gives the opportunity to connect to ebay website automaticall that from my point of view is very good because I am an ebay client.
    Having less free time, this toolbar is giving me the opportunity to quickly access ebay, amazon and to seek necessary information on yahoo search.
    Like other search toolbars, web page image results are visable in a search tray for easy review of not only the visual images of the site but also the written headlines.
    This is not spyware or adware.

    Searching through other threads I found these links that I think can help everyone
