What browser are you using?

Internet Explorer. However, Meebo ONLY turns up when I access my email on the server which is Frontier. Meebo responded and said that 'Frontier' was the one allowing this and that I did not have an association with them! Going to call Frontier againa as they just this morning said they had nothing to do with it! I also set cookies to a higher level and listed Meebo on blocked sites. One of these might do it but I'm not counting on it!

If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks

:-)

Click on "Tools" drop down. Click "Manage Add-ons". Click the toolbar you are trying to get rid of and click the "Disable" button in the bottom right hand corner of the pop up.

Hope that helps

Thanks for your suggestion. That was the first thing I tried. Unfortunately, Meebo doesn't appear. If I understand correctly, it is on the Frontier web page, just as an ad would be. I am still trying to get rid of it.

You could try using an ad-blocker, I've always had 'AdBlock' on Chrom, but not too sure if it's available for all browsers, otherwise there's a small browser add-on called Ghostery (do a Google to find it). I've only been trying it for a week or so, but it works very well at blocking things like Meebo, along with many other tracking programs. It's available for all major browsers.

For blocking the Meebo ad from IE Explorer, check out post #10 in this old thread.

For blocking Meebo ads from Firefox, I used the BlockSite Firefox add-on and added both "meebo.com" and "*.meebo.com" (without quotes) to the blacklist. FYI, when you do this and go to a site that has the meebo ad, you get a message at the top of the screen saying part of the website has not been loaded because its on the blacklist. However, I don't mind this too much since I don't have to see the meebo bar anymore.
