    I hope so, the most of the softwares which include ask toolbar or yahoo toolbar offer this choice.
    For example I use Comodo IS 3.8 (Only Firewall with no antivirus buillt in) and I deselected ask toolbar and Safe Search, so did I for CCleaner

    Andy if you read the information from Security Garden it states that even if you un-check the installation that it will still install. I got this information from the newsletter, so I think it must be on Corrine's site as well, and the information comes from the trusted Winpatrol web site.

    I haven't had an opportunity to test it myself. However, a fellow Microsoft MVP reported that unchecking the toolbar option made no difference. It was installed anyway. This is also what was reported in the comment at "Bits for Bill" and at SunbeltBLOG HaloScan.com - Comments .

    I installed it a few weeks ago on a system, and I can't recall seeing the toolbar option. Not saying it wasn't there, though. If it was, I would have unchecked it, and I don't see the toolbar available to me here.

    Exclamation

    For an experiement I downloaded and tried the install. There was the tool bar, and when you unchecked the tick box you get the following message: by not installing the this toolbar the following items will not be available for free use:typewriter tools and text converter. So a condition of installing the tool bar you get these things, otherwise you don't. So it is not complete! So I went ahead and then I looked at my desk top and there was a short cut to ebay! This was not mentioned at any stage that it would be placed there! I quickly removed the whole thing and then checked in my registry and it was still showing there so I deleted that as well. Conclusion: It does have the toolbar included and there is an unexpected short cut as well. As far as I am concerned it can foxit off, because I wont be using it

    Odd, I never had that experience at all, esp. the eBay shortcut. Did you download it from Foxit directly?
