Thread: Who is responsible for this?

  1. #1
    See tool bar image:

    I just ran search and destroy, and adaware and it is still happily living on my IE browser.

    I normally don't encounter and download ad-junk tool bars. Did I get this from downloading eXeem?

    Regardless of who I got it, what is the best way to get rid of it?

    thanks

    Cydoor and Looksmart adware components are bundled with each installation of eXeem. See http://www.exeem.com/privacy.htm

    do you have something like "Toolbar LookSmart" in your ADD/REMOVE?

    Yes, Add/Remove Programs should do it for you.
    But I have had a few tool bars that would still show up in IE. In witch case I used Iolo’s System Mechanic 5.0 to remove it.

    I get those shit bars every once and a while they are VERY ANOYING

    They will only isntall without permission on internet explorer.
    One of the many reasons IE is shite.


    But anyway yes that's probably from eXeem, it's packed with spyware like that.
    Run hijackthis! and post the log. Also make sure adaware an spybot an are up to date.
