Spyware Infected!!!

Postby mikus » Wed Jan 11, 2006 1:05 am

My PC got infected with spyware sometime last night. I ran AdAware SE Personal last night, and it is finding a ton of spyware, and removing most of it. But everytime I run it, it finds something new. And there is a list of files that it says it cannot remove.

Now, I cannot log onto the internet with my computer. I just got it to where my desktop looks normal again.

Anybody ever heard of this? Remedies?

I am so bored without my computer. Please help :~(

You normally have to use multiple programs in order to make sure you got everything.

That's what you get for looking at all that naughty stuff ;) }:-)

If it gets to a last resort, just reset your computer with the startup discs you got with it. Or get a Mac and you won't have to deal with spyware ;)

Yet another reason to use a Macintosh. Browsing the web on my Mac Mini with Firefox makes me feel so safe. I stick to "known" sites at work on this Gateway thingy. Dang thing is loud, too.

Start up in Safe Mode and then scan. Safe mode is the minimal set of Windows drivers needed to start the machine.
Also download and scan with Spybot Search and Destroy.
