If you have already installed this toolbar, click here to use AdwCleaner to remove the Potentially Unwanted Programs that were installed.. AdwCleaner is a very small program and doesn't require any installation.
You may also use Sophos free virus removal tool, click here to download.
I do not recommend installing the HeadlineAlley toolbar.
