I have Huntbar on my computer. I am using Spybot. Spybot always detects Huntbar but says it cannot remove it. Any suggestions on how I can remove this from my computer?

If you use Spybot's Teatimer function, disable it for now
------------------------------------------

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

I updated MBAM, ran a full scan, rebooted, ran Spybot. Unfortunately, Spybot again detected Huntbar but was unable to remove it.

This is the result of the MBAM full scan

I am running McAfee, Spybot and recently per your instructionsfrom my previous post, MBAM. When I run a full scan in McAfee, it picks up two detections:

Traffic Syndicate/Hu and
Generic!Artemis

When I try to remove them, McAfee says they cannot be completely removed. Can you give me any idea how I can remove them from my computer?

Note: I have another post on with Spybot detecting Huntbar. Someone is currently helping me with trying to remove huntbar. These two posts may need to be combined into one.

How dangerous is Huntbar?



Huntbar (HuntBar/Btiein and variants, including HuntBar/Ctoolb, HuntBar/MSLink, Huntbar/QDow, HuntBar/Side, HuntBar/WebSearch; also is similar to the IBIS Toolbar) is a browser hijacker that resets the start and search pages in IE. It also delivers targeted pop-up ads to the PC. Huntbar is part of the TrafficSyndicate "contextual marketing solution" developed by First Cash Reserve. The company promotes its TrafficSyndicate technology to any company that wants to redirect traffic to its site in order to generate "a powerful residual revenue stream" (again, in the words of First Cash Reserve).

An ActiveX control, Huntbar will attempt to install itself on your system when you visit any site affiliated with First Cash Reserve or TrafficSyndicate.

How To Tell If Huntbar Is Present On Your System

The browser attempts to redirect searches to Huntbar.com. (The attempts will fail, however, as Huntbar.com has been out of commission for more than a year.) It's also known to have an adverse effect on browser performance and may cause browser crashes and error messages.

Huntbar is not supposed to be that hard to get rid of. You probably got it when you downloaded Bearshare (which I would remove)
Try this:

-----------------------------

Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

I am a bit confused when you ask is the toolbar still there. I am not quite sure what toolbar you are referring to. Perhaps if I give you more detail, my computer issue may make more sense to you.

RE: Bearshare
I do not recall ever downloading Bearshare (although my son could have done this when he was still at home). I do not recall ever using it nor do I recall ever seeing any type of toolbar for Bearshare.

Yesterday, I went to My Computer, clicked on remove or add programs and deleted Bearshare. This is all I did. I did not notice anything different in any of my toolbars on IE after I did this.

On my Home page in IE

I have the top row that says Metacrawler Home Search Page – Microsoft Internet Explorer

The second row has file edit view favorites tools help

The third row has icons back forward stop refresh home search favorites media history mail print edit with Microsoft Word discuss real.com and messenger

The fourth row is my address line

There are no other toolbars


RE: Huntbar
I have actually had Huntbar on my computer for a couple of years. I have never seen any type of Huntbar toolbar and I have never been redirected to a Huntbar site when browsing on IE. The reason I never paid a whole lot of attention to Huntbar is because I never noticed any effect from it. We connect to the Internet through a DSL line. Occasionally the browser is somewhat slow (especially on E-Bay) but for the most part, we have no problems.

The details that Spybot gives when Hunt bar is detected is as follows:

[SBI $BOC706A7] Global Settings HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\BTIEN

Next to the above are the words Registry Key

Spybot finds Huntbar but when I click on fix problem, I get the message that says some problems couldn’t be fixed; the reason could be that the associated files are still in use (in memory)

A few minutes ago, I ran a quick scan on McAfee and got no detections

I then ran a full scan on McAfee and it detected the following:

Generic!Artemis

File Name: C:\System Volume Information\_restore {B37680B2-BA0A-4E5D-BF30-83E44C588624}-\RP220\A0096918.exe, C:\Documents and Settings\Mary Ann Roper\Doctor Web\Quarantine\Xcite2.exe

Traffic Syndicate\Hu

Registry Key: HKLM\Software\BTIEIN

McAfee says that the items detected cannot be completely removed.

I ran a scan on Spybot and Huntbar was again detected but could not be deleted

I know I have taken up so much of your time. Are you at the end of your resources or do you have any other suggestions.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your log in the thread titled "Post in this thread when you haven't received an answer in five days.".

Hello maroper,

Now that you have a log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/206351/huntbar-traffic-syndicatehu-genericartemis/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
