Currently Notice: Undefined variable: incprefix in /data/www/xblock/product_show.php on line 123 25,860,543 Spy Software Busted!
Full Name:
Type: Adware
Also Known As: IPINSIGT
Danger Level: 1
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Official Description: IPInsight is a process or IE Browser Helper Object that monitors addresses entered into web forms, ostensibly to try to make a database of physical locations of IP addresses.
Comment: Both of their websites, www.ipinsight.com and www.ipinsight.net, are deactivated.
Manual Removal: IPInsight/Ipinsigt should have an entry in Add/Remove Programs, which removes the software from the current setup adequately.

However it leaves a copy behind in the 'last known good setup' which may reappear if you boot using this option. Delete the file IPINSIGT.DLL from the LastGood folder in the Windows folder, and IPINSIGT.PNF and IPINSIGT.inf from the LastGood\INF folder. Finally you can remove IPInsigt from the hidden 'inf' folder in the Windows folder to clean up.

Manual removal
Sentry variant: open the registry (Start->Run->regedit) and open the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Delete the 'Sentry' entry. Reboot Windows and delete Sentry.exe and Sentry.ini in the Windows folder.

Ipinsigt variant: open a DOS command prompt windows (Start->Programs->Accessories) and enter the following commands:

cd "%WinDir%\System"
regsvr32 /u "..\IPINSIGT.DLL"
Reboot Windows and delete IPINSIGT.DLL in the Windows folder. You can also delete the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\IPInsight to clean up if you wish. Then see the LastGood removal instructions above.
