HELP I need to remove Incredifind!!!

By deeda ·
Hi,
I am having a problem with a computer--it wont let us go to any internet site and it wont let us even go to our internal site. I think it has to do with Incredifind, because everytime we put something in the address bar it goes to incredifind..... I have found lots of Manual removals that I would have to mess in the registry for, but I am wondering if anyone knows an easier way, such as a freeware program out there? I have found a few that can detect it, but not delete it unless we buy the software... Please if you have any suggestions let me know!

Thanks

When the link offered above doesn't work, try this one:
http://tinyurl.com/358ze

TR has an issue where it inserts spaces in long names and URL's for some reason, may be due to text settings limiting the number of simultaneoous chracters in a single word or something. The tiny URl is the exact same link offered above but redirected through URL compression server.

Another good tool for stopping this from happening in the first place is to use a good AntiVirus scanner (not related to this specific issue) AVG is free and works way better than most of the retail versions for sale.

AdAware will clean up ad and web tracking plugnis picked up when visiting sites (VERY handy daily run through!)

IE-SPYAD is a Registry file (IE-ADS.REG) that adds a long list of known advertisers, marketers, and spyware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer. Once IE-ADS.REG is "merged" into your Registry, most direct marketers and spyware pushers will not be able to resort to their usual "tricks" (e.g., cookies, scripts, popups, et al) in order to monitor and track your behavior while you surf the Net.

Between the fix and these prevention methods you should be able to avoid these hijacks and spies in the future.

To add to Oz's links, here is one for HijackThis:

Looks like this spyware adds a BHO (browser helper object) that is loaded when IE starts. It would be listed in HijackThis as PerfectNavBHO.dll but you are gonna have to clean out the Registry entries to avoid it from coming back.
