My computer is infected with this stubborn spyware which always show me to download software from a software company. I have tried spybot search and destroy, AVG antivirus scan, Windows malicious software removal tool and ccleaner. But unfortunately its coming back again and again. I have tried to remove all the unnecessary files or software from control panel add/remove programs and traces from my program files folder too. But I don’t know this pop-up still giving me hard time. Could anybody have any solutions about it

I had the same problem with a client recently. Can you tell me what the program is that keeps popping up on you? Does it block your internet explore from opening?

Pop-ups saying machine is infected


There's a good chance that the popup itself is the infection. Do not download what it wants you to download! I recommend downloading a few free pieces of software that will hopefully help you out. If you don't have any active protection software I recommend you download Microsoft Security Essentials, it's free and it's great. Secondly Malwarebytes (Which can be downloaded from download.com [or cnet.com]) is a handy virus remover, but isn't active protection. Spybot Search and Destroy is another piece of non-active protection with a good virus / spyware remover.
Try downloading these and running them in safe mode. To get to there, restart your computer and press F8 repeatedly as it boots up, until you see a boot menu. From there navigate to safe mode using the arrow keys and enter.
If you're not particularly computer savvy however, if you do have an infection I'd recommend taking it to a professional.

Computer slow due to unwanted toolbar or software


What is unwanted toolbar or software? Unwanted toolbar or software are affiliate content come with setup program that install on your computer without notification or approval. It can be image, media, sound and other resources. Since you download and install the main application, you also get the bundle applications. At most time, people do not aware that those additional stuffs were installed on their computer. Malicious bundle install can slow your computer. So here we suggest you keep away of them.
How unwanted toolbar or software work on your computer?
When you download software which claims it is free, you should take care at installing. It will prompt you to install other program. If you are a new of computer, you may install them by mistake.
Those annoying things not only install on your computer but also add themselves to startup. Please pay attention to those malicious behaviors, they may take potential threats to your computer. It is suggested to uninstall useless and stubborn program with a perfect uninstaller.

What's more, some of the program does not slow down your computer. However it comes bundled with some spyware or malware applications that install in the background of your computer and use resources. I do not recommend you to download peer to peer program such like LimeWire. Computer performance becomes if you always do things as above. Of course, an efficient anti-virus is importance to you. Make sure you update the anti-virus once a week. Cleaning virus and spyware gives your computer speed obvious improving.
If you really need like part of the bundle applications but not like it to load at startup, Here is the method to clean up startup.
1 Click Start>Run, you will see a dialogue box.
2 Type in msconfig and click OK.
3 Click Startup and select any items you want to remove.
4 Restart your computer.
As you already know what is unwanted toolbar or software. You can uncheck the content when install. Keeping your computer clean is very importance for a fast computer.

Hi, i hope you can help! My daughters e-machine shows ATTENTION! SPYWARE ALERT. It says the computer is infected by spyware. 34 serious threats have been found while scanning your files and registry. It...


Restart the computer, when you see the Emachine logo, tap F8
go to safe mode
Once in safe mode, go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools system restore
restore to 1 week previous that you downloaded the malware. The software that you are getting hit with is a virus itself called "Hijack Ware"- it basically holds your system hostage.

Now after that is done, go to a site like Avast! or AVG and install an antivirus (Both of those are free and reputable. I prefer Avast!)

Don't click and don't believe crud like those popups ever again.

Lack of Virus information


It's not a virus, but a worm. It's intent is to hjack your browser. It will download things, like popups, and ads, that you would not want. You shouldn't need to worry about it if you keep your anti-virus and anti-spyware applications up to date. If you feel the machine is infected, restart the machine in safe mode, run a scan with your anti-virus/spyware software, and allow it to fix what it finds.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
