Subject: Microsoft Anti spyware found malware: IBIS Toolbar

I have XP Home and Microsoft Anti spyware found some malware (IBIS Toolbar) that was removed but on rescans, it shows up again, but now located in the restore points. I believe that I have to turn off System Restore and reboot and then turn restore back on and do a new restore point. Please advise. Thanks.

Hi all...

A collegue and I got notification this morning from MSAS that I have a "High
Threat Level" with the "IBIS Toolbar (Adware)". The problem file is
"C:\Windows\unvise32qt.exe".

I believe that this is a False Positive. I ran the usual gambit of tools
and I come up clean. I checked the IE 6.0 "Manage Add-Ons" and IBIS Toolbar
is not listed.

I never got this hit until the new defs dated 09/10/2005 (Spyware Definition
Version: 5753 (9/10/2005 8:26:51 AM)

I also got this same IBIS Toolbar Notification on my home PC. Again I ran
the usual gambit of "Spyware tools" and came up clean.

I am a "HijackThis" advisor on a few forums and know how to analyze a
HijackThis log. Both my home PC and my work PC logs come up clean.

Could this be a False Positive???

Thanks,

Kent

Yes, that is correct Turn off system restore then Download, install, update
and run all of the following.

Ad-Aware
http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/aawsepersonal.exe

Spybot search and destroy
http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/spybotsd14.exe

Ewido Security Suite Trial version
http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/ewidosetup.exe


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.

re: "shows upon rescans"

Immediate rescans?

Immediate rescans after reboot?

Or rescans some days later?

I answered my own question of the FP. A couple threads down, the
"unvise32qt.exe may not be spyware" thread mention that it is indeed a FP.

Thanks,

If it identifies C:\Windows\unvise32qt.exe as IBIS Toolbar, it's a
False/Positive. UNVISE32QT.EXE is a legit QuickTime uninstaller.

Microsoft has established separate newsgroups for the Microsoft Windows
AntiSpyware Beta. Please post your query to:

It come up on a new scan after reboot, and every night when MS Antispyware runs automatically at 3 AM. The IBIS Toolbar ihas been removed from the computer but it's still is the Windows restore files.

If it's only showing up in the restore files, you can either delete the
files manually (delete only the infected ones) or (this will wipe your
entire restore tree) disable restore, reboot, enable restore and reboot
again.

QuickTime is not spyware.
It is a legitimate player for QuickTime video files.
