Windows 7: ToolbarUpdaterServices

ToolbarUpdaterServices

I just tracked spikes in my CPU usage to an instance of ToolbarUpdaterServices.exe running in my services list. I tried to locate it but wasn't able to turn it up in a Windows search.

Can anyone tell me how to permanently remove this?

Looks like it's adware SystemLookup - Toolbar Updater Service

"ToolbarUpdaterService.exe Zugo adware toolbar variant, connects to installmonetizer.com"

Download Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a free download that removes viruses and malware from your computer

Install and update then run a scan.

I ran the scan and while it found and deleted four other probably viruses, it still left the ToolbarUpdaterServices behind.

Is there another way getting at it?

Got it! The bloody thing was sitting right out in the open of my Program Files (x86) folder under "StartNow Toolbar" I have no idea how it got installed in the first place but good riddance.

Thanks!
