Earthlink Toolbar - block popups, search Google, and be alert to scam websites
|EarthLink Toolbar has great security features
for those of you who are in fear of falling for phishing emails and other
scams. I liked the EarthLink Toolbar but I had to reclassify it from
freeware to adware because the built in Google takes you to a
branded Google page with an Earthlink header and a banner ad in it.
If you don't use the Google search box you can hide it and you'll never
see those ads.
