Pest Patrol on XP can not remove "HuntBar.BTln?" spyware or virus
Posted on 2004-11-12
Our company has invested in a program called Pest Patrol for removing pop ups and spyware from a Window XP box.
It does a great job except for 1 pest that shows up as 10 pests all with the name of HuntBar.BTln? (? is part of the file name)
After running the utility it directs us to a folder C/Program Files/Common files/wintools.
The program states that the pest will be deleted upon restart, however it never goes away.
The symtom is that the computers network and Internet seem to be taken over by some type of search engine in IE.
Everything is very sluggish and IE screen looks broken/scrambled with search elements not related to what we have as the home page.
There are multiple enties in the registy for win-tools but when deleted they almost instanly recreate themselfs.
