so ive spent the last 4 hours getting rid of the stupid mystart-incredibar.com thing. ive booted in safe mode, ive run the malware, hijackthis, everything i can run. ive manually deleted files, ive automatically deleted files. to the best of my meager abilities, i have eradicated this pest from my computer.

however.

on hijackthis, its still showing 2 changes in my registry.

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

hijackthis can't make changes to the hosts file, so i have to go check it out myself in regedit. i get to internet explorer and there is nothing there. i click on the folder and theres nothing in it but "default".

perhaps im just being daft, but i dont see how i can possibly change something if i can't even access it.

i can haz halp plz?

If incredibar is a recent install then you can use system restore. Just restore back to
a restore point just prior to getting infected. I would uninstall any programs that have been
installed after that restore point before attempting to use system restore.
