Removing Browser Highlighter
I already tweeted about this problem, referring to the post by Oliver Bodnar, but as the Browser Highlighter also adds itself back “stealthily” during simple updates of Skype, I though I might as well post a reminder here as well.
- Close Firefox;
- Go to Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/Extensions;
- Delete the browser highlighter folder;
- Restart Firefox.
PS: as previously highlighted by Oly, on his Manifesto, there might be some further “junk” left on your machine (probably in the registry). Feel free to add a comment below if you have suggestions in this regard;
* UPDATE *
Good news: the most recent versions of the Browser Highlighter can be uninstalled via Windows \ Control Panel \ Programs & Features.
