editor's review




Symantec Adware.Istbar / Trojan.ISTsvc Removal Tool is a lightweight and portable piece of software that's capable of removing the Adware.Istbar adware component from your computer, which is usually associated with the Adware.SideFind and Trojan.ISTsvc e-threats. It is easy to use.

As installation is not a prerequisite, you can just drop the executable anywhere on the hard drive and run it. It is also possible to save the app to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, from where you can run it on any computer with minimum effort.

An important aspect to mention is that the Windows Registry area does not get entry updates, and files do not remain on the hard disk after program removal.

The interface of the application is based on a small and regular window, with an uncomplicated layout and limited options. You can initialize the scanning procedure with the simple click of a button. During this time, Symantec Adware.Istbar / Trojan.ISTsvc Removal Tool may close all instances of Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer, in order to remove the Adware.Istbar toolbar. There are no other notable options available through this program.

The utility barely uses CPU and system memory, so it doesn't burden the computer's overall performance. It has a good response time and finishes a scan job rapidly, depending on the size of your hard drive. No error dialogs have occurred during our testing, and the app did not hang or crash. On the downside, Symantec Adware.Istbar / Trojan.ISTsvc Removal Tool  has not been updated for a very long time.
