BHODemon and Hijack This and Browser Hijack Blaster
http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php?cat=sp#det
BHODemon http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/bhod/ | Think of BHODemon as a guardian for your Internet browser: it protects you from unknown Browser Helper Objects (BHOs), by letting you enable/disable them individually. This program is my choice for BHO detection and is highly recommended.

Browser Hijack Blaster http://www.wilderssecurity.net/bhblaster.html | Running silently in the background, Browser Hijack Blaster only springs into action when an attempt is made. It watches and protects the following items: IE Homepage, IE Default Page, IE Search Page, BHOs. Whenver one of the above items is changed, or a BHO is added, you are immediately provided with information on the item, along with the option to keep the change, or revert to your previous settings.

Hijack This http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip | Written by a member of our support forums and based on our Hijacked! article, this program scans the locations in your computer system that may be modified by browser hijackers and fixes any problems found. An easy-to-understand tutorial is available at TomCoyote.org.

If the first two don't help then us Hijack This and then post the results of what it finds here so we can analyze it for you.

Run Hijackthis and give us the log file ..

It would easy for us to check the registry entries and would tell you which one to delete from registry....


This would delete or uninstall or remove spidersearch

Have a good pop-up blocker so that spywares like this may not come again

Manual removal: They have an uninstaller on their web site that could work.

Open the 'Downloaded Program Files' folder in the Windows folder. Right-click the 'I-Lookup.com Toolbar' object (Ineb variant), or the 'GlobalWebSearch.com' object (Chgrgs variant). Click 'Remove'.

I had an awful time getting rid of this pesky search toolbar. I tried all the above, and it just kept returning whenever I relaunched IE. I finally got rid of it after manually deleting the winalot32.dll file from the windows/system32 folder. Hope this works for everyone else.
