IBIS Toolbar (Adware)

  mbp 10:47 11 Sep 2005

I ran MSAntispywarebeta this morning and IBIS Toolbar showed up. I clicked on remove. I then ran RegistryFirstAid but found nothing. Am I cleared out? Or do I have to download the special Removal tool to remove it?

Lavasoft AdAware

The above two will work together with MS tool so you can download, install, update and run them.

Diodorus, Thanks, I have run Adaware and Spybot S&D, and both came out clean. Evidently, MSASbeta must have removed it effectively. Thanks for your suggestion. A good precaution!

Thanks bvw, perhaps it was a false positive, anyway, MSAS did clear it up.

That's funny MS Antispyware found it on our other computer tonight for the first time.

Just run it on my PC and it found the same IBIS toolbar and removed it.

But it may well have been a false detection as per bvw's link click here

I ran MSAS beta this morning and it found IBIS.

So I let MSAS remove it. As well as using MSAS I also use AdAware, SpyBotS&D and SpyBlaster. So I was pretty surprised to find this. I thought I was locked-up tight.

IBIS is listed on click here as spyware. So what's it to be.

Hmmm same here.

Ran MSAS and found IBIS a couple of days ago.

I was surpised I keep things locked down as well.
It was removed easily enough (too easily?)

May well have been a false positive.

Ah yes check bvw in bristols link.

I have used Adaware, Spybot, and MS ASPW adn each time I run any of this after going to any website they find it again. They say it is in C:\Program Files\Toolbar\Skins but Explorer won't let me acess it
