    What was the exact name of teh Antispyware program you installed? Did you get a pop-up message syaing you had spyware on your computer and the pop-up saying you should download their software.



    Use an verified online scanner like:



    Trend Micro HouseCall: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    Or Norton's Security Scan: http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/Welco...



    Make sure you don't have a virus or other spyware on your computer.

"Spyware" is a term used to describe software that advertises, collects personal information or changes the configuration of your computer.

Rogue anti-spyware programs are classified as "spyware."
These programs change your Internet settings and redirect your Internet searches to malicious websites.

For example, when you search for "Google," a rogue anti-spyware program might instead take you to a website selling rogue software.

Examples of rogue anti-spyware programs include Vista Defender Pro, XP Antispyware 2011 and System Restore.

Fortunately, these programs can be removed so that you can access sites like Google again.

Click "Start," then "All Programs," and then "Windows Defender" to open Windows Defender.


Click the down arrow next to the Help button. Select "Check for Updates." Windows Defender will install available updates. This may take several minutes.

Click the down arrow next to Scan and select "Full Scan" from the drop-down menu.
Windows Defender will scan your entire computer and automatically remove any spyware that it detects.

How to stop pops-up ?when I open my internet connection so many pops-up about malicious pictures


Most of the spyware programs on the Internet that will infect your computer log the websites you visit so that they can launch pop-ups and advertise products for you to buy.


If you have recurring pop-ups caused by spyware that appear whenever you connect to the Internet, you will need to completely remove the spyware causing the problem.


The most effective way to remove all spyware from your machine is to use at least two different antispyware programs while your computer is in safe mode so that the spyware cannot open itself.


Navigate your web browser to a website that offers a spyware removal utility such as "Spybot" or "Lavasoft Adaware".


http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html spybot


http://www.lavasoft.com/ lavasoft


Download and install the antispyware software.

Navigate to a second website and download a secondary antispyware utility.


Restart your computer and wait for the manufacturer's logo to appear on the screen.

Press the "F8" key repeatedly until a new menu pops up.


Scroll down through the list of options and highlight the entry labeled as "Safe Mode."

Open up the first spyware utility you installed earlier once the operating system has finished loading in safe mode.


Click on the antispyware utility's "Update Now" button at the left side of the window.


Wait for the program to finish downloading the latest spyware detection routines.

Disconnect your computer from its Internet connection either by unplugging its Ethernet cable or by powering off your wireless router.


Click on the "Search For Problems" button above the "Update Now" button.

Wait for the program to finish scanning your computer's hard drive for spyware, and then click on the "Remove Selected Problems" button.


Close down the antispyware program.

Reconnect your computer to its Internet connection.


Open the second antispyware utility you downloaded earlier.

Run the program's update feature and then disconnect your computer from the Internet again.


Run the program's scan, and then remove any problems it finds.

Reconnect your Internet connection and then restart your computer to finish removing the recurring spyware pop-ups from your PC.


Hope this helps

SPYWARE DRIVER ISNT WORKING WHAT DO I DO?


go to add-remove and uninstall the program make sure the directory is also deleted on your HD because if you don't the problem will more than likely reoccur then reinstall it, a lot of programs create files during install and if one gets corrupted it might not be removed at uninstall leaving the problem in place.

Your computer is infected with some form of spyware or malware. Try installing and running a spyware removal program. Adaware is a good and well known brand, available both online at lavasoft.com or at most computer retail stores. Most antivirus programs also have some form of spyware removal, though free antivirus programs this feature is either disabled or severely limited.

AntiSpyware 2008 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the developers as Antivirus 2009. This program is advertised through misleading and deceptive web sites that pretend to be malware scanners that find infections on your computer They do this to scare you into thinking your infected, even though a web site can't possibly know this, in the hopes that you will download and install the AntiSpyware 2008 program. If you decide to install it, the program will scan your computer and come back with a list of security risks found on your computer that you cannot remove unless you first purchase a license of the software. It is important to remember that these people are preying on your fear and for the most part you do not have the infection they say you do.
