Removing VSToolbar (VSAdd-in.dll)

This section provides tutorial notes on how to remove VSToolbar (VSAdd-in.dll).

Action: I used HijackThis to try to remove the infected VSAdd-in.dll.

1. Ran HijackThis and did a system scan.

2. Found and checked the following items in the scan report:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {46A4E9D9-B30E-452A-8157-DBBEC8573B03}
   - C:\Program Files\VSAdd-in\VSAdd-in.dll
O3 - Toolbar: &VSAdd-in - {74DD705D-6834-439C-A735-A6DBE2677452}
   - C:\Program Files\VSAdd-in\VSAdd-in.dll

3. Clicked "Fix checked".

4. Scanned again. No more VSAdd-in.dll in the report!

Conclusion: Removing VSAdd-in.dll was easy with HijackThis. But you make sure that Trojan Vundo has been removed from the system first. See other chapters in this book for more information on Vundo.
