Can't Get Rid of Browser Hijacker.Deskbar

Recommended Posts

Have run SuperAntiSpyware and repeatedly cannot get rid of Browser Hijacker.deskbar. Have also booted in safe mode and cannot get rid of it. Even tried to manually delete the registry keys and Windows will not allow it to be deleted. Here's the log... would appreciate some assistance in getting this off my system. Thanks.

It sounds like you have a "Permissions" issue with these registry keys. What Windows operating system are you running (with service pack #)?

I am running Windows XP with Service Pack 3. I've looked at the permissions and they looked ok, but maybe I need to be walked through how to check them again for proper settings. Thanks.

Thanks... I worked on the permissions for these registry items and finally was able to delete this. Something in the registry from freeze.com that had changed the permission so that nothing would delete it. Uuugh... what a pain. Thanks for the help.

Glad you are fixed up. It's a typical cybercriminal tactic to change key permissions to prevent removal of their nasty registry keys. :x
