right click on the ie toolbar (links toolbar) and you will be able to see that the optional toolbar is listed there. uncheck the toolbar. this will do the trick for most toolbar.

What is the name of the program?  I use a program called Download Accelerator, and it added a toolbar.  But it can be disabled by rilght clicking on a blank space of the menu bar and de-selecting the DA bar.  Maybe the same applies to you...

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
