SAS fails removing traces of AskToolbar on Vista x64 edition

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have the latest SAS defs and using the free edition, some registry entries are not being cleared from the Ask.Toolbar infection. Specifically:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\clsid\{9AFB8248-617F-460d-9366-D71CDEDA3179}]
 and
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{9AFB8248-617F-460d-9366-D71CDEDA3179}]

SAS detects these and says it removed them, but upon reboot and re-scan, they are still there. I know I am not infected with this Toolbar anymore, I think it is just because SAS is a 32bit app it can't access those 64-bit areas of the registry. What I think you need is a 64-bit "helper" app that SAS can call into play to operate on 64-bit areas of the registry in such cases.

by the way thanks for the great app!

Yeah I did a bit more searching and it appears that the 64bit PRO version will have native 64-bit drivers for realtime protection etc. I will most likely purchase the Pro version at that time, but until then I guess this kind of cleaning will have to be done manually.
