I am hoping you can help me. I have been trying to get rid of a toolbar (I am running XP PRO)which currently hijacks not only my browser but also appears as a toolbar in Windows Explorer File Manager - called NEO TOOLBAR. Every time I run anything from a browser to file manager to the Control Panel, this damn thing is consistently there. I have run all kinds of Malaware removal programs, including ADAWARE and SEARCH AND DESTROY, HIJACKTHIS etc - all to no avail.

I have included a picture of what it looks like in a IE window.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to how I can get rid of this thing? I am getting very close to just formatting my drive - that is how much time I have put into trying to resolve this and all the things I have read through to find something more about it.

Please email me directly in addition to posting a reply here, if possible: [email protected].

Thank you! :)

Howdy Blitz02, You should be able to remove is via Control Panel/add/remove programmes and click on "remove".

Yes - I know - IF it were listed there. Actually - I was able to fix this dog finally myself. I booted to a SAFE environment (F8) and deleted the file called MSQSB.DLL located in the \Windows\system32 subdirecotry.I knew that this was the file since I used HIJACKTHIS to identify how the NEO Toolbar was getting loaded:
O3 - Toolbar: Neo Toolbar - {722E8B26-1C44-460F-88BB-50C82B20E30E} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\msqsb.dll

Once I deleted any instance of this using HIJACKTHIS, making sure that HIJACKTHIS WAS the only app running (****-down all browsers and instances of File manager etc.), I then shut down - booted to Safe mode to a DOS prompt, and deleting that file seemed to do the trick.

Thanks for your reply, though ...
