    I have Spyware S&D running on my system. It is set to run every time I boot up. It always finds Huntbar but can never fix it. I have searched the web for help with removing this spyware and nothing I have found has enabled me to remove it. I have gone into the registry and tried changing the permissions on the registry entry and I still am not able to delete the registry entry for Huntbar. Has anyone been successful removing Huntbar?

    TIA

    This did not get rid of the HuntBar spyware. Another thing that keeps happening is that my home page setting in Internet Explorer ALWAYS gets set back to about:blank every time I reboot.

    I ran HijackThis again and the resulting log is

    Hi CKruse,

    We have a name-changer on our hands.

    Download and install Regprot from http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=regprot

    Then have HijackThis fix:
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [rsvce] C:\WINDOWS\System32\rsvce.exe

    You wil get alerts from regprot that something is trying to create new RunKeys. Don't allow them, click No.

    Reboot, run HijackThis again and show us the log.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I downloaded regprot and unzipped it. Before I ran regprot, I scanned with HijackThis. The rsvce.exe was gone.

    There was no install file, so I just clicked on the regprot.exe file. It told me that runkeys were being created - to which I responded "no". I ran hijackthis again. This is the log

    Hi CKruse,

    Bring up TaskManager and kill this process:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\dvdq.exe

    That should get you some more Regprot alerts.
    Keep denying them.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I don't have C:\WINDOWS\System32\dvdq.exe running as a process. The closest thing I have is devldr32.exe

    Yes, Pieter, time zones make life (and trouble shooting) interesting. I am still not able to keep my home page set to anything and Spybot S&D still cannot remove HuntBar :doubt:
