    :D Hi, I tried it recently .... it is InterMute's SpySubtract which has been purchased by Trend Micro.

    All kinds of F/P's .... Hotbar or Huntbar included .... also detected an uninstaller for one of my other legitimate programs as malware. o_O

    Also something called J. Marshal in 84 locations (within the registry). :(

    It even reported msconfig (I made a change earlier in my startup programs & had not yet rebooted) as CoolWebSearch !!!

    Needless to say I did NOT delete ANYTHING & removed it from my PC immediately. :mad:

    It looks like Trend Micro have their work cut out for themselves.

    HR :cool:

    Trying to get rid of huntbar, IBIS, IEPlugin on customer machine. was hoping this thread would have some intel.. used about a dozen different tools which claim to erradicate them, but they re-appear on each reboot.. cannot change permission of reg keys and do not have access to folders for manual delete of these.. man are they pesty..

    Trialled it a few months ago when it was released officially, nothing special in my opinion the other better options is to use Spy Sweeper 4.0 coupled with Spyware Blaster and Spybot Search & Destroy.
