    How do I get rid of Strange Icon (smiley face) on tool bar


    I have a strange Icon (smiley face) on tool bar. How do I get rid of it? Attached is a screen shot of the icon. I think it came from some freeware that I installed. I don't know which one. I uninstalled the 'page maximum' from JiiSoft.com. I thought that's where it came from, but it's still there. I user Revo to uninstall it so I should have gotten all parts of it. I have emailed JiiSoft several times asking about the icon, but have not received a response.

    Now IE 11 is showing pages crazy. The page is all over the place. See the example of the router I was interested in. I uninstalled IE 11 (via check box) and then I rechecked it in manage software (Control Panel/Programs and Features/Turn Windows Features on or off)

    From what I have read, you cannot entirely reinstall IE because it is part of Windows 10 operating system.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi sehodge, welcome to tenforums.com! :)

    The 'smiley' is a MS feedback thing, nothing to worry about.
    You can get rid of it from showing but, the process to do so, is almost too complicated to even bother.

    Its unfortunate that they decided to put it there. You'll wind up not noticing after a while. Even better, use Firefox!!

    Thanks! I will ignore it from now on. I am relieved that it is from MS and not some freeware. However, that still leaves IE screwing up the page view. Here's a view of a simple 'coffee warmer'.
