Remove MSN Toolbar and Uninstall MSWINEXT.EXEeasy things msn toolbar

I installed the MSN tool bar by mistake by not paying attention when I was installing an application that I downloaded.  It was part of the install and I missed unchecking the box so it would not install. My browser really slowed down and I noticed my memory usage in task manager went way up because there was a new exe called mswinext.exe using a bunch of memory. I did some research and found out it was the MSN Toolbar. The good news is that it was not a virus, malware, or spyware and it is one of those easy things to remove and uninstall just like when you remove Flipopia. Don’t be fooled by some of those sites claiming it is a virus, sypware, or malware. They claim you need to download and install some software to fix your computer right away.  They might even try and sell you the software.  I am not saying that the MSN Toolbar is a bad thing and maybe if you are running a new computer with plenty of resources and a fast internet connection, you would even notice a problem. I am saying, if you are noticing slow downs and have internet speed issues, this could be the issue.

    If (like me) you only get the “Bing tool bar” in your add/delete programs and not the whole MSN toolbar you can simply go to your COMPUTER, C DRIVE, PROGRAM FILES, MSN TOOLBAR, PLATFORM, 5.0.1385.0 file, and you will see the msw file. Now click “Control/Alt/Delete to open your CPU. Select end the mswin.exe file in your CPU and then to the one in your 5.0.1385.0 folder … delete it. If you try the other way it says it can’t do it because its in use so follow the steps. Its gone and I kept it in my trash bin and test my system to be certain it runs fine. (I do this for ANY file I get rid of) If for whatever reason things are not running properly you can go to your trash and select it back to original location, but you don’t need this file. It’ll slow your system down. You will find your computer running top notch now.
