Everytime I turn on the computer, my Microsoft AntiSpyware always detects this IST.ISTBAR threat, and each time I try to scan it and remove it, but it always comes back. Here's my logfile.

Hi canuckgirl

Welcome to geekstogo

Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Download the CCleaner unzip the file to install.
Open CCleaner.
Place a check by everything in the Applications tab.
Place a check by Internet Explorer, Windows explorer, and System in the Windows tab.
Dont run it yet

Using Windows Add Remove Program Files uninstall the following Program
C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.globeandmail.com/
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.globeandmail.com/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http://www.yahoo.com:644
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lcfxcjs7F] C:\WINDOWS\cnlyui.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IST Service] C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe

thatman, thanks for responding! :tazz:
I couldn't find these two in my scan:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lcfxcjs7F] C:\WINDOWS\cnlyui.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IST Service] C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe

...but I was able to check off the others.

Anyways, here's my new log:

I do not have the problem of "removing" LST.LSTbar", because my anti adware program announces it's attempt to invade each morning, and blocks it from happeing on a prompt from me.
LST.LSTbar is thus a daily threat, and I would like to know what it is, and who is trying to invade my PC. Is there something that can be done to permanently remove this threat?. The supplied house cleaning is very complicated. And does not offer immunity thereafter.

Hi canuckgirl

Download the Microsoft Antispyware

1. Download the CCleaner unzip the file to install.
2. Open CCleaner.
3. Place a check by everything in the Applications tab.
4. Place a check by Internet Explorer, Windows explorer, and System in the Windows tab.
5. Hit the button that says Run CCleaner
6. Reboot to remove index.dat files.

Clean out all temp files in Mozilla, Internet Explorer.
Internet Explorer: Tools/ Internet Options/ General/ Temporary internet files/ Delete Files (NOTE, that this may take very long!). You can also set the memory limit to about 80 MB at the Settings.

Mozilla: Edit/ Options/ Extended/ Cache/ Clear Cache

Turn of system restore
Disabling or enabling Windows XP System Restore

Defrag your hard drive turn system restore back on and create a new restore point.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use). Click Here
QUOTE
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox user posted image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. ;)

Kc ;)
