    hey Jaco,
    The ISTbar is a pain in the neck to fully get off the system.

    Here is what I recommend and has worked for me many times:

    Download and install:

    Spybot S&D & Ad-Aware
    (optional) Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta (2000/XP Only)
    Ewido Anti-Trojan

    And make sure to update them.

    Reboot your system and run it in safe mode (hit F8 before Windows starts loading). This will keep it from loading when Windows fires up.

    Run a full system scan with all the programs above.

    Delete everything in your "Temp" folder. (go to Start | Run and type "Temp" and hit enter. Delete everything inside.

    Clear your browser chache and temporary internet files.

    That should get it off your system. If you do a scan in Normal mode, you will most likely get a message saying that it couldn't be removed and ask if you want to let it rescan after a reboot. That is up to you if you click yes or no.

    Let us know how you go and good luck :)
