    Hi PistonBroke,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)

    I have this bad feeling.
    Can you please mail C:\Program Files\Common Files\Hyperbar\HyperbarSS3.dll
    to the address in my profile?
    Or, even better, if the folder is not too big, zip up the entire C:\Program Files\Common Files\Hyperbar folder and mail that to me.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://minisearch.startnow.com
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://minisearch.startnow.com

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://minisearch.startnow.com
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = http://minisearch.startnow.com
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.startnow.com
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://minisearch.startnow.com
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://minisearch.startnow.com
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = http://minisearch.startnow.com
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://minisearch.startnow.com

    Then download BHODemon from http://www.definitivesolutions.com/bhodemon.htm and use it to disable the Hyperbar BHO.

    Then reboot, run HijackThis again and post a new log.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Oh, and on SpyHunter. I don't see it coming close to my favorites anywhere in the near future, but they are not as bad as SpywareNuker. Not worth the money they are asking either, on the other hand.
    All IMHO of course.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    thanks for your reply pieter i installed WarezP2P yesterday which is where the startnow/minisearch stuff came from i have un-installed it all now as well as WarezP2P i think that must have been where the hyperbar folder was because it's now been deleted Sorry as i know you wanted to look at this
    I could Re-install Warez if you would really like me to see if i can find it again

    Please can you recomend the best for finding Cleaning out as my freind has scanned/Cleaned his with adaware S/Guard S/Blaster Etc but spyhunter found lots of trojens what is the best for trojens?
