I can't find AVG Toolbar in the "uninstall a program" in control pannel. How do I uninstall AVG Toolbar without uninstalling the AVG Antivirus?

I don't think it is possible to remove the toolbar alone.

You can hide it though

for most browsers this will work...

From the menubar... View>>Toolbar>>(uncheck the toolbar)

Start>>Control Panel>> Internet options>>Programs>>Manage Add-ons Then find it And hit Disable and your good.

Also, there is a tool named Autoruns. You can download it from Microsoft to delete the items started with IE.

The official way is to remove it using the AVG UI. Each "component" of AVG, such as LinkSafe, etc. can be disabled indpendently. – LawrenceC Jul 17 '11 at 3:11
