Freshbar in IE6

By bldsm ·
I have been infected by the Freshbar toolbar in my Internet Explorer 6. I have ran updated versions of spybot s & d, aware SE, my anti-virus avg, some shredder program, various windows updates and nothing works. The freshbar trojan (I think) slows internet processing and stops IE being used.

I tried HijackThis - a program that is supposed to fix it but no luck.

Can anyone suggest an automated repair program that is FREE and does the job.

Many thanks
Frustrated.

Did you download and run the new Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta?

And make sure you turn off the System Restore folder before you reboot, as most viruses are written to utilize that area now.

Start by disabling System Restore

Now using the tools you mentioned
HiJack
SpyBot
Ad-Aware SE
Run the programs in this order it should clear the problem

also run the tools in safe mode.
When done use spyblaster to take care that you won't get infected any more.

you might want to try to use mozilla firefox which is less prune to get infected.

Hi Bruce,

This Freshbar is a persistent fellow and takes a bit of work to get rid of.. :-)

Scan your computer with HijackThis and have it fix all the entries that say about:blank, all the O17 entries, and the O15 entry.

Reboot into Safe Mode

Search and delete the following: (Mostly in your %systemroot%\system32 folder)

Dnsauth.dll
Dte.dat
Dx9vbc.dll
Hdon.dll
Icust.dll
Iecust.exe
Iecust.exeNlsfuncs.exe
Menu.txt
Msij.dll
Msvw.dll
Mwx.dll
Nlsfuncs.exe
Openconf.exe
Pentxpl.exe
Qappsrvc32.exe
Spnping.dll
Taskopen.exe
Unlodctl.exe

Go to
Start, Run, and type in regedit

Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Run.
Click on Run and look in the right-hand pane for taskopen and hdon
Right-click on these two, if found, and delete them -- and nothing else!
Exit regedit

While still in Safe Mode, do a full system scan with your antivirus program and fix anything it finds.

Reboot normally.
