Yahoo BrowserPlus Removal Instructions Wrong for Snow Leopard


Yahoo Browser Plus BrowserPlusSummary. BrowserPlus by Yahoo is a browser plugin that allows sophisticated programming on top of a simple website making it possible to launch programs written on the BrowserPlus platform. It is similar to Adobe Flash, Adobe Shockwave, and Adobe Air.

Because BrowserPlus can potentially allow access to your hard drive and other computer components, it could potentially present a security or privacy risk.

Removal Instructions. The removal instructions for BrowserPlus offered by Yahoo are incorrect, at least for anyone using Apple OS 10.6 Snow Leopard. The removal instructions offered by Yahoo state that the removal script can be found in the user’s home folder [users/yourname] under the following directory path: Applications > Yahoo! > BrowserPlus. This is incorrect.

  • Users of Snow Leopard should go to their home folder [users/yourname] and look for the removal script under this directory path: Library > Application Support > Yahoo! > BrowserPlus. This is where you will find the BrowserPlusUninstaller script. Double click on this file to remove the BrowserPlus software.
