This SBI command is outdated and will probably not be supported in Spybot-S&D 2.0. As of yet, it is unclear whether an automated conversion path exists. Automated conversion paths may also be less sufficient than a manual upgrade. We recommend that you take a look at RegyKey for a possible alternative command.

Searches for the common IE extentions, like menu extentions or explorer bars, with the given parameter as part of the name.


IEExtension:<name of extension or extension clsid>[,advanced build parameters]



This example will detect the following IE extensions:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Do nothing]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Still do nothing]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Email nothing]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Search using nothing]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Search using even nothing]


This command checks various Internet Explorer extensions. For BHOs and toolbars, check the BrowserHelper and BrowserHelperEx commands.

  1. The first parameter specifies a substring of the name or filename of the extension. Algo-Prefixes are supported only after 1.5.2. AP
  2. The second parameter allows to specify advanced build parameters, which basically allow you to run this only on specific IE versions.

Thanks to advanced registry parameters, RegyKey should now be preferred over this command.
