    Huntbar

    When referring to programs executed, they were all executed in Safe Mode.

    I am working on cleaning up a friends computer and Spybot detected huntbar (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TOOLBAR key) but was not able to remove it.

    Ad Aware SE did not detect it but removed several other items.

    Mircosoft AS detected many more items however when it was scanning the registry it became stuck on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TOOLBAR\PLUGINS, kept eatting up memory and eventually locked up. So it was never able to finish when ever I ran it.

    Doing research on this item, the registry key mentioned above is linked to Huntbar but I have been unable to delete it. Using the same research, I have removed any offending items I found relating to this issue. But unable to remove the key ... even tried running Safe Mode with command prompt in case that would work.

    I also ran TweakNow RegCleaner and it could not identify deskpan.dll; fde.dll; cdooff.dll. I don't think those are related to this issue but unsure if I can remove it without causing any problems or if I even should remove it.

    Also here is the HijackThis log from that system:

    So my question are:
    Those 3 dll files mentioned, is it safe to delete them? Is there a way to delete this registry key? Do I need to boot with something like Knoppix and try to remove that key?

    If more information is needed about the system let me know and I will post it after work today.

    Thanks!

    I had a similar incident with another piece of malware.

    Try this:

    Boot in Safe Mode and log in with an administrator account
    Open My Computer
    Select Tools > Folder Options >View Tab

    Uncheck Simple File Sharing, and Check Show All Files. Now, apply the settings

    Right Click C:\ and select Properties. Select Security Tab, and click the Advanced Button.

    Select Owner, and then the Account you are logged in with (even if it already says you are the owner)

    Check the box that says "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects", and apply the settings.

    Now open regedit and click on the key you want to delete.

    Select Edit > Permissions

    Select Advanced, then select the account you logged in with. Click Edit, and check all the allow boxes. Make sure at the top, under the account it says "This key and subkeys". Now click OK, Apply, etc. until you are back to regedit.

    Now refresh the screen and delete the key.
