Try using Spybot Search & Destroy to handle TinyBar, eZula and others.
Download it from http://spybot.safer-networking.de/
Update the program after successful installation.
Run a scan.
If no luck, try the manual removal from:
As for eZula Top Text which is nasty because it will re-install itself. Go to http://www.whirlywiryweb.com/removeezula.htm for instructions on how to remove it manually IF Spybot Search & Destroy will failed to remove those.
I have Windows XP SP2 and a copy of Allume Internet Cleanup 4.0.
Recently, I had a major crash and had to do a clean install of my Op Sys.
Few days after installing all the software , I noticed that in the Spyware section of my Internet Cleanup it had picked up: TinyBar and eZula Top Text.
So I did a House Call at Trend Micro, but it did not pick up anything at all.
So I disabled the system restore and run another scan, but nothing was detected then either.
I then visited Computer Associates site and downloaded a copy of their Pest Patrol and also looked for their virus signatures to try and remove these spyware manually.
Neither using the Pest Control nor removing all the registry entries manually helped.
I have also used:
Lavasoft Ad-aware SE 1.05,
InterMute Spy Subtract Pro 2.60 with it?s CWShredder,
Webroot Spy Seeper
And few more.
Here is what happens:
As soon as I open IE TinyBar appears.
Sometimes eZula Top Text appears as well..
If I clean the system registry by removing their entries either manually or with Internet Cleanup, as soon as I open a new IE the toolbar on the top has been changed and gone. The only ones left are : Standard Buttons, Address bar and Links rest, which is XenoBar is closed and unticked..And TinyBar is back again.
Another thing that has happened, which I am not sure if it is related to these spyware, is that on Internet Cleanup / Manual Clean option you can open the ActiveX Controls, and if need be delete them, since the problem with the spyware, every time I click on ActiveX Cntrols to open so I can see what is in there and from whom it is, Internet Cleanup shuts down and I can not see the contents.
So obviously all of these software can detect TinyBAr and eZula Top Text and remove their registry entries BUT none of them can find the source of them and remove them once and fo all.And by the looks of it, it must have something to do with my ActiveX Contorls....
Looking forward to have someone help me to remove these pest from my PC and fix these problems, they are also slowing down the system.
Thanks in advance,
