    Hello everybody. Sorry but I'm new at this, so here we go.
    I used Spybot - Search & Destroy to scan my computer and it found:
    HuntBar and Connect MFC Application.
    It said: Registry key, fixing failed.
    Can I go into the registry key and remove everything that is associated with both of these?
    Thank you, BM. :D

    you might want to try scanning your pc with bazooka. it is free and really fast. it doesn't remove spyware, but lets you know what infections you have and gives step-by-step instructions for manual removal. for example: you can check out this page for manual removal of huntbar . however, i wouldn't recommend just going in and deleting anything until you've done a scan with the bazooka scanner.

    by the way Connect MFC Application may be a false positive. so a 2nd scan with another program might help determine this.

    Thanks to both of you.
    I scanned with bazooka and it didn't find anything.
    Should I still go and use the huntbar manual remover?
    Has anybody else used this and is it safe and did it work?
    Thank you, BM :D

    If there are really huntbar entries in your registry, and other evidence for the existence of huntbar on your machine, I advice you to remove manual everything that is related to huntbar.

    Such a manual removal is safe, if you follow exact the removal instructions.
