Could you compare it with MyIE2?
Could you tell us if the avast! Script Blocker provider work with it? (It seems to ignore - not work - with MyIE2). Thanks for your time.  ;)

From the staff of MyIE2 (http://myie2.com/)

We disagree! UCMore toolbar is not installed by MyIE2. What MyIE2 has is a supporting plugin that will enable UCMore toolbar to run correctly after the user has installed it in IE, himself.

The users in our forum also discussed this issue:

Could you have a look at it?


In defense of how it could be perceived that UCMore is adware / spyware, UCMore is included with the main MyIE2 download as an optional plugin, though this option may seem a bit obscured for some users. If it's accidentally installed, it can be removed by unchecking it in MyIE2 Options - Advanced - MyIE2 Plugin, and restarting MyIE2. Then, just delete the UC folder and it's no longer an issue.
