The Buzzdock browser add-on, created by the folks at Sambreel and built on top of Yontoo Layers, incorporates an enhanced search dock into several popular websites as well as your Google search results. It is also responsible for injecting advertisements into these same Web pages, a feature that many users are not thrilled about. Fortunately, uninstalling Buzzdock can be accomplished in just a few short minutes. This tutorial walks you through the process.

First click on the Windows Start Menu button, usually located in the lower left hand corner of your screen. When the pop-out menu appears, select the Control Panel option.

Windows 8 users: Right-click on the Windows Start Menu button. When the context menu appears, select the Control Panel option.
