How to disable spyware - infinity/roving bug type from landline phone AT & T phone service. This spyware is software generated onto the targeted landline phone. Help! my privacy has been invaded...


Spyware is incapable of infecting landlines. You can only have spyware infections on more computer and computer like devices.

PC's, Apple/MAC, some SmartPhones, some advanced video game consoles.

If the servers running the land lines are infected w/ spyware it is AT&T job to keep the servers fully functional but if that is not the case change providers. There is no way to work legal on AT&T's servers w/ out being a direct member of there support staff.

Thanks

My previous hp computer crashed due to spyware infection. I manually back up my maxtor performed 3-4 days prior to infection. Will the Maxtor files be safe to download into my new computer?


Well since you've said that you computer crashed due to a spyware infection and that you backed up your maxtor some days to the infection, there is every likelihood that the maxtor will also be infected. My advice to you will be to first of all scan the maxtor file with a very strong anti virus before sending it to your new computer or else you will end up loosing your new computer if the maxtor file also contain the spyware infection.

Hi! i have a acer aspire one, everytime i switch my laptop on it pops up with a privacy center and i cant get rid of it?


Privacy Center, or PrivacyCenter, is a rogue anti-spyware program designed to trick users into purchasing its full rogue version. Privacy Center looks similar to Privacy Components. Privacy Center may infect your computer through a Trojan, spam emails or it may have come bundled with another malicious program. Privacy Center sells itself as an effective spyware remover tool, however, all it does is make you believe you're infected with numerous spyware threats to offer its "licensed" program.

Go to the link below and download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware program. When it installs it will ask to update and run, please do both. Once it updates, run the program and perfrom a QUICK scan only. When it is through scanning it will ask you to click on the show results button. When you do that it will show you the infections it has found, make sure they are all selected and delete them. You should be malware free now.

After having update done I still have(WARNING!sPYWARE iNFECTION) ON THE TOOLBAR AND STILL POPS UP EVERY TWO OR THREE MINS.


Just for the sake of my knowledge, what toolbar are you talking about and did it mention the exact or generic name of the so-called infection. The reason I ask this is because some toolbars will have you believe that you have a spyware infection in order to get you to buy their suggested spyware cleaner i.e. false and misleading technique to sell a product that usually does nothing except lead to more such indications. However if you want a very good free cleaner, give SpywareBlaster 4.0 and Spybot Search and Destroy 1.52 a try. Both are free and both work exceptionally well in concert, the first as a preventative vaccine type of software, and the second as a very good trojan and spyware scanner. I use both of them along with my Avast 4.8 software that now also includes a spyware scanner. Between the three of them I would hazard a guess that the only way you would have a real infection is if you went purposely disregarded all warnings. www.safer-networking.com and www.avast.com for the last two, www.javacoolsoftware.com for Spywareblaster
