    Hi Guys,

    Anyone point me in the direction for some info on how to remove the Startnow
    Toolbar from a clients machine. I have already tried the latest versions of
    MSAS, Spybot, AdAware & CWShredder but with no success. I'll try using
    Google to find the info but as I trust this NG thought I would ask here as
    well. Thanks in advance,

    PT

    Do you have any experience of this program, are you sure it can remove the
    Startnow Toolbar?

    Ewido Security Suite Trial version

    If none of the above fixes the issue then download Hijack this, run it, save
    a copy of the log file and cut and paste it back here to this group so that
    I can analyze it. Ignore anyone especially the troll Leythos, who will tag
    along a nonsense post to this message, who tells you to post it elsewhere. I
    need to see it not them.

    You have been replied to by, PCBUTTS1 the alt.privacy.spyware News Group Troll and it
    would be best for you to add him to your killfile list.

    He has been told many times in many News Groups NOT to request HiJack This (HJT) be posted
    to the News Groups he posts to. The Microsoft News Server now summarily filters him out or
    deletes his Sock Puppet posts. He has been publicly reprimanded by authors of software for
    hosting anti spyware applications/utilities on his web site without authorization from them
    and has be caught lying about their authorization.


    Do not download any software from http://www.pcbutts1.com Any software suggested should
    *only* be obtained from the vendor/author's web site or their selected download service.

    Please do not post HJT logs to this News Group. It is a violation of this News Groups FAQ
    section #7

    We encourage you not to post HijackThis! logs here. Please consider
    seeking analysis at an (expert) Web Forum that handles HijackThis! logs.
    Please see Appendix 2 for a list.

    Also, unless requested, do not post the URL where you suspect you
    obtained your adware spyware malware / parasite infection. Instead,
    alter the URL in some way so as to make it human-readable but NOT
    clickable, such as "h**p://www.removethis.example.c*m". Why?
    Unsuspecting or inexperienced lurkers might just click on the URL and
    get unwittingly hijacked. Note that this request applies only to suspect
    URLs, and is not meant to discourage the posting of information about
    possibly rogue web sites. Please DO tell us about them; just do so safely.

    Removing Startnow ToolBar

    In Windows 7

    In C:\program files\Startnow, find the uninstaller!
    I found this program was in the top 5 CPU user and really slowing me down - shows up as toolbarudatertool.
