If you’re trying to remove all the crap off a friend’s bogged down computer, Toolbar Cleaner is a handy little app that does a thorough job stripping away spammy toolbars, dubious add-ons, and browser helper objects.

Toolbar Cleaner is a free application that helps remove unwanted garbage from your Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome installations–including third-party toolbars, extensions/add-ons, and browser helper objects (plug-ins that modify your browser behavior and can contain malware). If you’re dealing with a machine drowning under all the toolbars and crapware that have snuck onto the system, it’s a nearly one-click solution to purging all of them.
