Yoog Toolbar Replaced Google Toolbar!

May 13, 2009 at 20:50:59
Specs: Windows XP
So I wanted to find a program to split movies, and I tried a file from Limewire that turned out to be corrupt (that was stupid of me, I know). It installed this Yoog toolbar in Firefox and Internet Explorer, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get rid of it. I've used AVG 8.5, Trend Micro PC Cillin, Ad-Aware, Super Anti-Spyware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Any help would be very much appreciated as this thing just won't go away! Thanks in advance.

download avast free, install it and get it to do a bootscan on reboot. Move all it finds to the chest.
That should remove the problem....if not post back

Thanks for your help. I scheduled the boot scan on reboot and left it running uninterrupted. When I returned to my computer, I found it running normally with no messages or anything from Avast. I have Avast running in the background, and I can't seem to find the report from the boot scan. The Yoog toolbar is still in IE, but I managed to remove it from Firefox earlier. I'd like to remove it completely. Thanks!

ok, run hijackthis and post your results into this link:
http://hijackthis.de/
Then google your questionable results. ONLY remove stuff that is safe to remove, any questions post back

Did you try removing it in add/remove yet? I don't see any mention of that.

I followed your instructions and the Yoog toolbar is still in IE. I don't know how to remove IE from my computer. I had version 8, and when I removed it, version 7 remained. The control panel will not allow me to remove this version. Thanks for bearing with me on this.

You can't totally remove IE from your PC. IE7 is much better than 8 as far as speed goes.
