Yahoo Online Protection removal: yaxclean
In a previous post, I wrote that I used  the "Norton Removal Tool" and "unyop.exe" programs finish removing Yahoo Online Protection after the initial uninstall failed.  Well, I found another possible solution I should have tried first.

The AT&T Yahoo! help pages include an article "How do I uninstall AT&T Yahoo! Online Protection? - AT&T Yahoo! Online Protection version 2.5".  I had read that article but I missed this at the bottom: "If you experience any difficulties with the uninstall process, click here to perform an additional uninstall of the software."  That "click here" link downloads a file called "yaxclean.exe".  I haven't tried it, but at least it's documented, unlike the "unyop.exe" program I ended up using.

Nice one. Couldn't BT, Yahoo et al have made it easier. Yours is the only reference to this un-installer I've found so top marks and respect.

Please help. I've tried the Norton removal tool and that didn't work. I couldn't find that link you mentioned above through ATT.

Unfortunately, it looks like the links I used no longer work. I did a little searching, but I haven't found any new links that do work.
