    Hi - you can find removal tools here:

    Regarding Istbar: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.istbar.html

    Re Startpage: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/java.startpage.html


    Re: Trojano: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/keylogger.cone.trojan.html

    If you are using Windows ME or XP, be sure to disable your System Restore before attempting removal. When removal has been completed, enable your System Resotre and Reboot your computer.

    As a swcondary opinion to be sure you are clean, do an online scan with TrendMicro: http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

    Hope this works for you.

    As you appear to have a variety of issues, please do the following:

    Go to http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html, and download Hijack This.

    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, and save the log somewhere.

    NOTE: Most of what Hijack This lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

    Next, go to the Spyware - Hijack This section of that board.

    Press "New Topic", explain your problem, and copy and paste the contents of the Hijack This log into your new message. You'll get expert assistance in dealing with your problem.

    Cheers,
