    Bonjour! a frenchie!, my english is not so good, sorry!

    I'm experiencing a very strange behavior with spywareblaster! i.e.

    1) it leaves unprotected all by itself, a HUNTBAR variant!. Why?
    2) If I check the red Huntbar variant, it WRITES in my registry
    local software microsoft internet activeX
    {8952a998-1e7e-4716-b23d-3dbe03910972}

    which is supposed to be a pesto_O

    Can you help??

    Any answer welcomed
    Best regards

    Hello,

    No I dont have pest patrol, but SPYBOT teatimer
    The question is :
    IS
    {8952a998-1e7e-4716-b23d-3dbe03910972}
    a dangerous active X?

    And why such a strange behavior? Version 3.4

    By the way, I have installed spyguard 2.2 at the same time

    compatability??

    Best regards

    That entry is just one of the many entries Spywareblaster has in it's database to help prevent Internet Explorer ActiveX controls such as HuntBar from installing onto a users PC. In order to apply that protection....Spywareblaster has to WRITE in your registry. The link below explains what setting an ActiveX kill-bit does in preventing certain ActiveX controls being loaded.

    This link---> How to stop an ActiveX control from running in Internet Explorer

    Hmm....if you are seeing it WRITE to your registry in that location....it tells me you have Admin rights ?

    Also....since there are quite a few security\privacy cleaning programs that do Falsely remove valid protection in regards to Spywareblaster....Please tell us the programs you are using....operating system, AV\AT, spyware\adware cleaning programs such as SpyX :doubt:

    Also....your e-mail addy has been edited out again in order to prevent possible e-mail harvesting by the unscruplous individuals on the net.

    Re: HELP, HELP! spywareblaster 3

    Thanks Buba,

    I have noted you bared my adress :-*

    1) Yes I have adminstrator rights
    2) I am FRENCH so my english is far from perfect (sorry)
    3) Do I understand well that spywareblaster IS on purpose writing in my registry {89...huntbar variant..} ? to protect MY computer??

    4) I have in the startup:
    AVAST updated AV
    Sygate personnal Updated
    WinPatrol
    Spybot+teatimer
    spyguard22
    BHO demon

    5) it is pest patrol ONLINE that pointed out the pb with {89...Huntbar.}

    I have not found ANY other trace of any installed program that comes with this huntbar variant;

    Hope to have been extensive enough
    Best regards
