Hi,
Over the last week i have been having great diffuiculty removing ISTBar and Dyfuca malware from my system. Initialy ad-aware and spybot search and destroy fopund around 30 objects. When these objects were deleted they would re-apear after a re-boot. Since then i ahve installed winpatrol and was able to delete an IST toolbar that it said was installed and also kill some suspicious process that were running. I have cleared the prefetch data as well and carried out all these cleans with system restore turned off.

After this i have still got 3 reg entries that keep re-appearing after being deleted. These are:

(from ad-aware)
DyFuCA Object Recognized!
Type : Regkey

Category : Malware
Comment :
Rootkey : HKEY_USERS
Object : S-1-5-21-299502267-448539723-839522115-1003\software\ist

Does any one know how i can remove these objects for good and prevent them from coming back??? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below is my Hijack this log.
