Many people think that they can download spyware protection software and then forget about it. However, that is not the way it works. In order to keep your computer clean you have to use the program frequently. Most programs do not stop spyware from getting into your computer; they simply remove the program once it is there. Therefore, you have to scan your computer frequently to check for any unwanted programs. If your program will scan to remove spyware automatically you should schedule a scan every day. You can have the program scan your computer when you are asleep and then you never have to worry about the problem again.

Hey yeah you got spyware,
but anti virus dont remove spyware,
For virus's you use an anti virus
For Spyware you use anti spyware
For trojans you usea trojan remover

Here are my suggestions for your security system

AVG Anti virus > made by grisoft and is free(just download)
SuperAnti Spyware >>> this is also free i thank god for this one

Now the resaon you cant delete the file is cause its running in your processes, You can downalod the superanti spyware remover and let this do the work for you or...

1.) click start the run and type msconfig the hit enter
2.) click startup and disable the application or applicatios runing the file
3.) reboot
4.) delete the file

please note this may just be a quick fix, just becasue the program isnt running doesnt mean its gone, to totally remove it will require registry fixes and is very difficult for newbies, I'd suggest you downlaod the Super Anti Spyware and use that...

Hi,
I would try running one of the free online scans by someone like Mcafee or PCCillin, you can run these without actually buying the software. They will help you see if you have any issues.
As for the file you cannot delete. It is likely that this file has been locked hence your not able to remove it. There is a free handy program called unlocker that may help if you search for this on google and install it, you can then right click on the file and you will have a new unlocker option, choose this and you can then unlock the file, and even try and delete the file from this program.
Hope this helps. Please note I have no idea what your file it so I cant guarantee that if you remove this file everything will still work, as long as your sure its ok to delete the method above should work.
Thanks

Simon

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.

Possible spyware has been detected


Try installing a program called adware, its free and can remove any spyware you may be getting. Try that and then see how it goes, you shouldn't have to run a recovery just for a bit of spyware.

Spyware Guard 2008 is a new entrant to the family of rogue security software. It is not to be confused with SpywareGuard a fine freeware from Javacool software.
A rogue security software belongs to a family of software products that call themselves as antivirus, antispyware or registry cleaners and often use deceptive or high pressure sales tactics and deliberate false positives to convince users into buying a license/subscription. They are often repackaged and renamed. They do not actually remove malware instead many of them add more malware of their own

I have an alert stating that WARNING SPYWARE HAS BEEN DETECTED ON YOUR COMPUTER


Your computer is infected with malware. You should install an antivirus and at least one antimalware program(the more the better). Once they are installed, make sure they are updated and run a scan with each program individually in safe mode(press f8 at the post screen when you turn on your computer and choose safe mode). A couple good free antivirus programs are AVG and Avast. To name a few good anti malware programs there's Spybot Search and Destroy, Superantispyware, and Lavasoft Adaware. You can also go to www.ewido.com and run an online scan.

Spyware problem in Laptop Satellite M100


I haven't checked the link out but the chance of it not being a malicious site is too small to be worth bothering. DON'T EVER GO TO A SITE THAT POPS UP PROMISING TO HELP YOU OUT. My preferred anti spyware products are Spybot Search & Destroy and LAvasoft's Ad-Aware. If you can download the installation files onto another computer and then install and run them on your computer when it is disconnected from the internet and in safe mode, you are more likely to be successful.
