My anti spyware program keeps finding this Adware.IST/ISTBar (Slotch Bar) in the registry. I keep quarantining it, it keeps coming back. How do I kill the evil thing?

instead of quarantine try deleting it and also try malwarebytes its free and also rule of thumb when your anitvirus/antimalware finds an infection never quarantine always delete or it will show up again in my past experience

Hi, this damned thing still doesn't want to go away. Anyone know how to get rid of it?

I have detected it using Superantispyware, it places it in quarantine, but when i restart the computer it seems to have gotten itself back into the registry.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello,

It sounds as though something is protecting the baddie. Given that, I suggest you follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.
