Community Toolbar message keeps appearing?

by bestbari / March 22, 2010 11:43 AM PDT

I must have downloaded (something?) in the last three/four months that I don't remember. When I receive an email with a wmv. or pps. attachment and click on it to open, I keep getting the following message:

"Community Toolbar - We're sorry, but the Safari browser version you are currently using does not support the community toolbar."

The attachments open with no problem, except this annoying message appears every time.

I am using Safari Version 4.0.5 (6531.22.7) which I'm sure is the latest version.

I have no idea where this message came from, and I'd like to get rid of it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. pdm

I have the same problem- That annoying community toolbar message is not only annoying, it freezes up my computer if I don't close the window. Also, I have a strong suspicion that it has contributed to some other freeze- ups I had today. I could not even shut down my computer, to get rid of a pop up that occurred when I visited a site. a sign kept saying that Safari won't let me shut down, so I quit Safari, and I STILL could not shut the computer down or because I kept getting "Safari will not let you shut down" repeatedly. I even did force quit and nothing. I managed to shut the computer down, but I don't remember how. I didn't use the "Vulcan Death Grip" but I was afraid I might have had to. I have the latest Safari. I am pretty sure it is it is the video divx plug in I attempted to install- how do I get it off of my plug- ins list, now that I have found it? I have an iMac OSX Leopard, with the 5.1 version of Safari.

The Community Tool Bar is a Conduit product.
Use the Spot light to locate Conduit.
Conduit is usually located in Application Support in the Library.
Dump the Plug in.
