Uninstall FLV Runner Toolbar

I attempt to watch a video link sent by a facebook friend, and then suddenly, it tricks me to download viewing software from flvrunner.ourtoolbar.com. I did not realize that it came with an annoying FLV Runner Toolbar. I tried to uninstall it but could not find the FLV Runner from add remove program. Searching for a removal of this ended up with a bunch of crap web site that wanted me to use their services. Why would I do that?

I know that there are persons in this place who can help me remove FLV Runner Toolbar without costing a penny. If you know a tool that can automatically disable this toolbar, please suggest right away. If manual removal is the last solution, kindly provide a procedure that can understand by a non-tech like me.

By the way, I am using Windows 7 and Google Chrome browser.

Regards,
Ed Harrison

    FOR GOOGLE CHROME – Okay, if you haven’t figured this out yet go to the wrench on the chrome bar, then click on settings. There go to Extensions (to the far left) and click on the trash bin for the FLV player.

    @Joanne, try it this way.

    1. Open Google Chrome.
    2. At the upper-right corner of the browser, click the 3-bars icon.
    3. Select ‘Tools’ from the drop-down list. Then, click on ‘Extensions’.
    4. You should now be viewing Chrome Extensions.
    5. Select FLV and remove the check mark on ‘Enabled’ or simply Trash the extension if you can.

    You may also need to uninstall FLV from control panel. Click on ‘Start’ menu of Windows. Next, select Control Panel. In Programs section, click on ‘Uninstall a program’. Find and delete Applian FLV Player.

    @danica_s. Thank you so much for your help. The way you explained has worked. I can’t and never could uninstall FVL from my programs as it just isn’t and has never been there but hopefully – fingers crossed, your suggestions have worked. Thank you so much.

    click of c drive
    open programs folder
    scroll down and find flv toolbar right click and delete it then sends it to your recycle bin
    close folder close my computer open recycle bin and delete
    use cc cleaner and defraggler to ensure folder is fully deleted from your computer
    as the meerkat says “simples”

    Thank you, Donald! Believe it of not, FLV got downloaded with my free version of Malwarebytes…Unreal. Malwarebytes wasn’t flagging FLV as malware and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get rid of it, since using “Uninstall” on the control panel didn’t work. You were right — simple. Thanks.

  28. Angela

    Alex- Thank you SO much!! Finally got rid of the thing!

  29. Jenny

    For Firefox on Mac– go to Tools > Add Ons > then select Extensions, and then disable

    Alex. Hope you can help me too. I never installed the FLV player from the prompts knowing I probably didn’t want it. But everytime I click on a news story a browser shows up saying I need to install it. How can I stop that from happening?
