In the view drop down menu: Toolbars; I have one that will not go away. the title, in lower case, is "stchchbjxcr". It automatically inserts it self in IE, but has now changed and opens in the Google toolbar instead and Google opens in stchchbjxcr. I have search as far as my knowledge goes but have been unable to find the source. Is there anyone who can help me. I isn't picked up when I run my antivirus program, just would like to remove it. :evil:

If the program is not in your add/remove programs list then try searching for any file named stchchbjxcr. You could then delete any file named such, making sure to back the files up in case they affect the system. If that didn't work, I would uninstall IE and install Netscape :) just kidding.

Why say that you're kidding?

Most of the spyware/hijack/etc. programs exploit vulnerabilities that exist in IE; using another browser is actually a very good way to protect yourself from the stuff.

Download & instal Adaware from here
& update it B4 scanning.
In settings under 'scanning,' have it set to
'scan within archives,'
'scan active processes,'
'scan registry,'
'deepscan registry'
'scan my IE Favourites for banned URL's,'
'scan my host's file.'
In 'tweaks' under 'scanning engine' set it to 'unload recognised processes during scanning.'
Also in 'tweaks' under 'cleaning engine' set it to 'Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion' & 'let Windows remove files in use at next reboot.'
Select 'activate in-depth scan' before starting scan.
When the scan is finished select 'next.'
Remove what it finds by placing a check in the box to the left of the object. Reboot

Download & instal Spybot S&D from here Update it B4 scanning. Go into settings & have it check for Beta releases also & download if available.
After the scan is complete, have spybot fix everything marked RED.
On the page that first opens when you start Spybot there is an option to immunise, you should do this. In the immunise section there is also a link to download Spywareblaster. Download that & you can keep it updated by selecting the same link that you use to download it. Reboot

If that doesn't fix it Download HijackThis from here & unzip it into it's own, permanent folder, (not a temporary folder & not on the desktop). Start HJT & press the scan button. When the scan is finished the scan button will change to save. Save the log to a text file, copy the entire contents of the text file & paste it into the body of your post. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET. Most of what is there is harmless & even necessary to the running of your system.
