    Came across this troubled PC this am.
    Did the Standard clean-up.. But can't seem to find the program that is produces the following entires in my HJT log --- See red Entries.

    I've tried fixing them and going in to safe mode and searching for files/ folders
    C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe] C:\NCHHD.EXE... but can't find them
    (I've got show all files - on)

    From Symantec
    Note:
    · The date and time displayed will be adjusted to your time zone, if your computer is not set to the Pacific time zone.
    · The removal tool may terminate Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer. It is recommended that users save their work and log out of these programs before running the removal tool.
    · The removal tool will reset the Internet start page to a blank page. The start page can be modified by clicking on Tools > Internet Options in Internet Explorer.
    · The removal tool will not delete some harmless Temporary Internet files, which Adware.Istbar created, in C:\Documents and Setings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.
    These can be manually deleted using the following steps:
    a. Start Internet Explorer.
    b. Click Tools > Internet Options.
    c. In the Temporary Internet Files section, then click the Delete Files button.
    d. Check Delete all offline content, and then click OK.
    Trusted zones

    download http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

    Right click the DelDomains.inf file and click Install, making sure Internet Explorer is closed. You won't see anything happen. Give it a minute then reboot your PC and post a fresh Hijack This log.

    Note, if you use SpywareBlaster and/or IE/Spyads, it will be necessary to re-install the protection both afford. For SpywareBlaster, run the program and re-protect all items. For IE/Spyads, run the batch file and reinstall the protection.


    Then fix your entries and delete the C:\Program Files\ISTsvc FOLDER

    Hte fxistbar reported nothing found... ran/installed the deldomains.inf and appears to have gotten rid of the trusted site stuff.

    New Log file with same files still there...?!?

    FYI.. there is no C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\

    Open Windows Explorer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab.
    Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
    Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
    Now click "Apply to all folders", Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Did all that... and would expect to see that folder but it doesnot appear to be there.
    Note: the only other folder that looks suspicious is something called c:\programs\"Yoursitebar"... but that's it.
