Thanks for your reply to my question. I tried your suggestion but the alot toolbar was not there to select in the add-ons. And the toolbar is still there staring at me. Any ideas now?

How did you get it to work?

The developer site states that it is for Windows only. If you are running Windows on your MBP, go to add/remove programs and remove it there. Looks like this is an application. All this info is on the developer's site.

I was not satisfied with my Alot tool bar radio capabilities either, so I went to tools>addons>extensions. There is was with the disable or uninstall buttons. Hope this helps. I am on an iMac 10.6.2

I too had this problem and it was solved with the recommended procedure
stated in these posts. I got rid of it, but went back later after I
had the time to learn how it worked. So far so good.

Trying to Remove Aggressive Alot toolbar and other Alot prog
by mloupricethomas / January 18, 2012 6:22 AM PST

I was trying to download what I read to be a Yahoo toolbar, but what turned out to be an Alot toolbar. This program was so aggressive that it took over as my home page. When I could not get Firefox back as my home page, i tried to
uninstall the program from Control Panel and from the start menu but could not find it. i am also finding it very hard to post this reply.
