On every scan, Huntbar is pulled up. I delete it. Then on the next scan, just 3 minutes later, it is back again. I do not see it anywhere on my computer. Any help would be great.

The version of Huntbar (IBIS, btiein) I found seems
to reside in the c:\windows\srchasst folder. It kept
recreating deleted files there until I booted in the safe mode.
Search for "btiein" in regedit, and remove it. I had to
change the permissions of the subfolders to delete it.
This was also done in safemode after removing the srchasst
folder and rebooting into safemode again.
Also searched for "srchasst" in regedit and removed all
references.
Hope that gets rid of it for good. :cool:

what you are stating is dangerous for a novice and not recommended. There are valid srchasst entries in the registry that you may have removed also.

I was not aware of valid srchasst entries in the registry. In light of this just do the
btien removal from the registry, after setting permision(s) on the subfolders. There
were four files in the srchasst directory which would recreat themselves, they may
also cause problems.

i would recommend you leave the fixing to the qualified people. Instructiong people to use regedit without guidance can cause an unbootable pc if they do not remove the items properly.
