Threat Details:

  • trojan

IEReport downloads a bundle of bad software without user consent. Additionally it creates links on your desktop which lead to potentially unpopular software like Drivecleaner 2006. It also changes your Internet Explorer start page.
Removal Instructions:


Please use Windows Explorer or another file manager of your choice to locate and delete these files.
  • The file at "<$FAVORITES>\Error Cleaner.url".
  • The file at "<$FAVORITES>\Privacy Protector.url".
  • The file at "<$FAVORITES>\Spyware&Malware Protection.url".
  • A file with an unknown location named "iereport.dll".
  • The file at "<$WINDIR>\iereport.dll".
  • A file with an unknown location named "iereport.dll".
  • The file at "<$WINDIR>\iereport.dll".
  • The file at "<$LOCALSETTINGS>\Temp\BIT2.tmp".
Make sure you set your file manager to display hidden and system files. If IEReport uses rootkit technologies, use our RootAlyzer or our Total Commander anti-rootkit plugins.
You will have to use a global search for files without a name specified. Be extra careful, because just the name might not be enough to identify files!

Important: There are more files that cannot be safely described in simple words. Please use Spybot-S&D to remove them.


The following browser plugins or items can either be removed directly in your browser, or through the help of e.g. Spybot-S&D or RunAlyzer.
