i'll have a go at these & let you know how i get on
PS its a home PC ss
As someone has already suggested Spybot and AdAware used in conjunction with your preferred AV solution should keep your PC pretty clean of these annoying (and sometimes nasty) lil programs. For AV, I used AVG and have never had an issue with it.
Well, i must say thanks to all as my PC now seems to be completely free of them pesky spies.....
I downloaded SpyHunter & it worked a treat.
Sam - recent reviews suggest that the best anti-spywares only get rid of 60% of the pests... and each gets rid of a different 60%.
I'd recommend running more than 1... and running them weekly
I use the 3 in my earlier post. If I'm dealing with a machine with known problems, I install and update them and then boot in Safe Mode to run them.
You may need to turn off System Restore before running anti-spyware to completely rid yourself of the problem as spyware has a nasty habit of lurking in there!
