    My laptop has several viruses and spyware. I have tried MS Antispyware, Symantec, Spybot and Ad - Aware but the problem keeps coming back.

    Using the MS Antispyware I get the following

    iSearch. Toolbar
    Trojan.Unclassified.contextmenuhandler.A
    Vx2. Narrator (toolbar)Possible Browser Hijack
    Possible Host File Hijack
    Download:Trojan

    Also talked with the MS support team....could not help .
    Would appreciate any help to clean the system.

    Thanks

    Hi Rakesh! Namaste!

    It seems something is installing the iSearch toolbar on your PC again and again.

    It could also be that it has already been installed and keeps coming back as iSearch tries to repair itself every time you delete it.

    Try searching for iSearch in you Add/Remove Programs list and removing it.

    Regards,

    HI - I have moved your thread over to a more appropriate forum where it will get more attention. I'll also add that Firecat's suggestion is well worth trying. If that doesn't solve your problem, let us know :cool:

    Hi

    I had the same problem.
    Turns out there was a program ISTSVC installed on my computer. I could see it in my add/remove programs in the Control panel.

    This was causing the Isearch to keep coming back. So see if you have this installed en remove it. It will give you some crap warning that this program is necessary for some other software to run but that is a lie.

    Hope this helps!
