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 TotalRecipeSearch toolbar.

    I want to know how to access recipes without using the toolbar, which I have downloaded and removed. I have limited space as I have a small notebook, which I really love. Is what I have in mind possible? -Jean
