Hi all, I have a computer that belongs to a friends daughter which had "a virus", between AVG, Spybot S&D, Aaware, and Asquared I have removed over four hundred items, but Spybot can't seem to deal with the HuntBar. It will find it but can't get rid of it, it suggests to reboot and it will take care of it when the computer reboots, it then fails. If was suggested that I use Spyhunter which worked in locating it but I would have to purchase the utility in order to get rid of it.

Does anyone know of a free utility that will get rid of this? This is the only infection left...that I'm aware of.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi dc3,

PC Hell Offers two suggestions for removing the Huntbar, the second one being HijackThis.

How to Remove Huntbar or Search Toolbar.

How to Remove Wintools (A variant of Huntbar).

Hi TMack, I found those last night, the add/remove method won't work because none of the three names are listed. I would rather find a free utility that will get rid of this, if not I will try the registry fix.

You haven't mentioned trying SUPERAntiSpyware.

It detects a variety of Spyware, Adware, Malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits and many other types of threats.
Run it in Safe Mode and allow it to quarantine anything it finds.

Hi TMack, one of the problems is that there were so many infections that I had trouble getting into safe mode, I was able to get into safe mode this morning and delete the HunBar...I hope from the system. Apparently this is one tenacious type of spyware and it is suggested that in order to truly get rid of this you need to remove it from the registry. I'm going to get this puppy on line and up date all programs now and run them in safe mode now that I can and we will see what transpires.
