First off, if you're going to do this, make sure you're running in Safe Mode before you try running these scans. There are a number of different products you can use, but use them in Safe Mode.

Type Symantec Scan into a search engine such as google and scan it again. Try using Norton or System Mechanic Pro 7 for it.

Spyware is a type of virus. I wanted to offer my advise. You need to turn off system restore before doing any of the above suggestions. You also need to run a program called ccleaner. Most of the programs that are listed above can be found here http://www.filehippo.com/
You need to backup your data if you can because you may lose it. Just back up your mydocuments folder unless you place your data in a different place. After you are done you need to install the right protection. I used Avast FREE for home users and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for everything else. Just Google both terms.

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.

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.

Download AVG free edition and run it to check for virus and trojan infection. Then run Spybot - also free.

How do you know that your computer is infected with spyware if it won"t turn on?
The problem that you post can be anything starting from electrical problems to viruses or even a fried cockroach inside the computer case, ask a computer technician to check it out.

Spyware on laptop


Boot you computer into Safe Mode. Reboot and hit F2, F8 or F12 (Depends on the computer) but it will say on the screen. Boot to Same Mode and run the virus checker from there. That should find and delete the virus. To restore the desktop you need to right click on the desk top and choose properties, and restore it manually. The automatic settings never work for me either.
