OK, How do you know you have that adware/toolbar? What symptoms do you have?

IST BAR is blocked from installing by the program Spyware Blaster

You may want to check your security settings in IE for ActiveX and block active X unless you specifically allow it.

Buddy,Panda Active Scan told me i had IST BAR.So i downloaded Panda Internet Security 2007 evaluation and it found and disinfected something.It must of been IST BAR because ive just done another Panda online Activescan and it found nothing.And it does,nt take ages for a page to load up.Ive disabled,then enabled system restore,so hopefully im clean.

Yes, it sounds like you did have an infection. In my earlier post I mentioned that Spyware Blaster blocks bad ActicveX programs. It is a program that you don't scan with but works in the background and uses little resources. http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html This program will need to be updated twice a month.

I would also recommend that you post a Hijack This log because Panda did find something. Let the experts take a look and give you peace of mind. Just follow the directions in the link below.
