The most common way spy- and adware links into Internet Explorer is creating a browser helper object. This is an advanced version of the BrowserHelper command.


BrowserHelperEx:[name of bho or bho clsid],<advanced file parameters>


See BrowserHelper.


While using RegyKey might be more fitting for just matching a browser helper object with a static name, you might encounter situations where a random name requires you to use the name of the associated class, or properties of the file the browser helper points to.

  1. The first parameter can identify both the BHO name, or the name of the class associated with the BHO.
  2. The second parameter, though optional, is highly recommended to refine the scan to be limited to BHO that point to a to be identified file, where the filename is gathered from the CLSID associated with the BHO.
