Removing the AppBario toolbar


The AppBario8 toolbar has been is installed on my Computer and since then my PC is experiencing serious slowdowns and sometimes the screen flashes.
  • Appbario8 does not appear in the Add/Remove programs or can't be removed using CC Cleaner. What can be done ?


  • Download Ad-Remover (from C_XX) on the desktop.
  • Close all running applications
  • Double click the installer and install it in its default location (C: Program files)
  • Under XP: Click on the shortcut to launch
  • Under Vista: Right-click on the shortcut created and click "Run as Administrator"
  • At the main menu select "S" (Start scan)
  • A report will appear after the scan, then post it on the forum (it is also saved as C: Ad-Report-SCAN.log)
