Searchmeup adds itself to Favourites?!

  Jimer 18:56 30 Jun 2004

Everytime i start my PC i get Searchmeup added to my Favourites and Search Sites 2004 comes up on my Desktop.
I have run Spypot Search & Destroy which is regularly finding DyFuCa.
I have run Ad-aware which is regularly finding istbar.
I have run msconfig and cant see anything that looks wrong.

Please give me some ideas.

p.s. The only thing i can think of that ive loaded different is Limewire. (Similiar to Kazza)

click here and try the manual removal of dyfuca.

You can remove istbar from add/remove programs.

Note that Limewire may not work properly after doing this.

istbar may be called MS AUpdate, MS Updates, XXXToolbar or ISTsvc in add/remove programs.

I would also recommend uninstalling Limewire as it has embedded Cydoor spyware. click here and follow the removal procedure.

Run Ad-Aware and Spybot (update both first) afterwards as a further precaution.

If you want to use p2p software then Kazaa Lite is the safest as far as I know.
