    should uninstall it, if you must have it, turn off page rank
    page rank = spyware

    I love the google toolbar, not only is it an easy way to search google, itís also a very good pop-up blocker. Yeah, and you should disable Pagerank, it gives you the option right during the install,

    So its not really spyware, Google does tell you and give you the option to turn it off, so really its adware.

    Companies who pay google for advertising get a higher page rank meaning it is visited more no. of times than others.Have you tried the yahoo toolbar yet.It gives baseball,basketball scores;pop up blocker etc.
