I think you mean anti-spyware software? It searches your pc for malicious files that may reside on your pc from email attachments or downloaded off the web (unknowlingly) and can be somewhat harmless but annoying such as hijacking your browser, throwing up pop-up windows, giving false messages such as "your pc is running low on memory! Click here to fix". Other ones can be more harmful such as uploading files from your pc with personal info. or damaging your pc system files.

It doesn't help at all I am afraid

It is just a common hazard of the INTERNET and free downloads.

However with the aid of BOTH a decent anti-virus AND antispyware it can usually be minimised.

Common sense also plays a large part.

Don't click yes for ANY download unless you 100% trust the source.
NEVER install a tool-bar again unless you are 100% certain of its origin.
If in doubt use ALT+F4 to close unresponsive windows on the INTERNET.

It also pays to use some of the better on-line security scans occasionally eg. kaspersky, Norton, etc.

What dose vonarability mean


It is not "volnarability," it is actually "vulnerability." And, what that means in this context is that your computer can become "vulnerable" without the proper protection of software such as an anti-virus program (AVG, SUPER Anti-Spyware, Avast, etc.) or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. These programs protect your computer from possible threats from being on the Internet or even from your email. You, personally may not "see" them but these programs will. Make sure that programs that you may have on your computer now are always up-to-date. This can be dome manually or you can set them up to automatically update themselves.
There is also an online site that will check your computer for you and it is "housecall.trendmicro.com" Just copy the address into the address section at the top of your browser and click Enter. You will have to download a small (spyware free) program that Trendmicro uses to check your computer for any vulnerabilities.

Dialog boxes keep popping up saying that "Update manager failed " followedby other related boxes. I cannot get them to go away.


Hi,
If you haven't installed some kind of an update manager then these dialogue boxes are most likely due to adware or spyware on your system.
Try installing an anti-spyware utility an do a full system scan for spyware. There are many spyware utilities available on the internet for free. Do a google search to find a free spyware application.
Hope this is helpful.

I downloaded a program containing a virus that is quickly killing


It sounds like you got a dose of WINAntivirus Pro 2009, really nasty spyware. If that is the case, reformatting the system is almost a given.

You can try programs like Ad-Aware and Spybot search and destroy but some of these new ones are just way too time intensive to fully remove

I have a spyware in my aspire 5630-6622 What cant i do for my problem tank


  1. Download Spybot Search and Destroy.
  2. Boot your computer in safe mode (tap F8 during the restart process).
  3. Scan/Remove any spyware that Spybot detects.
If this is still an issue, a simple Google search for "spyware remover" will yield millions of results. Just make sure that you run the spyware remover in safe mode to ensure that it catches spyware that is already running on your system.
