Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Spy ware What is the best way to get rid of spy ware that Trend Micro InternetSecurity will not remove? I have run Trend and Webroot, ran the free MS safety.live.com search for spyware and clean up tools. I also deleted files and some programs I don't use. The issue is when I try to use the MS Explorer any search that goes to a sight that has ads running I am redirected to Gateway's search page and told they couldn't find some strange site which will have atdmt.com in it. Then Gateway shows multiple sites to go to for spyware or malware removal along with sites that look suspious. Will the HIjack This delete files I need if you don't know what to look for is my concern? Someone said to use something on Majorgeeks called Hijack This.

HIjack This is mostly used as a logging tool to help identify adaware. it will allow you to send the log file to an expert who will then be able to tell you what to look out for. as with all adware removal programs, you have to look over the results to make sure you are not getting rid of something valid before blindly accepting all their recommendations.

My two personal favorites are:
Spybot S&D found at www.safer-networking.org/
Ad Aware, found at www.Lavasoft.com

CAN'T FIND UNINSTALL FILE FOR SPY SWEEPER. Is causing conflicts with Trend Micro


Have you looked in the Spy Sweeper folder, most probably C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper and looked for the uninstaller - unins000.exe

You could always search for this file through Start>Search, select all files and folders and type "unins000.exe". It should find the file, this is the uninstaller, just double click.

You could also start in Safe Mode (restart computer and hit F8 when computer first starts) and delete the webroot folder C:\Program Files\Webroot\ . Do NOT try to delete the Program Files folder...

Good luck! Let me know if you need further help. I will check back tomorrow.

Remove webroot spy sweep from my vista hp. I tried to renew my Trend Micro Antivirus, and now I'm showing NO Antivirus on my HP. Called Trend Micro and was told to remove Webroot. 09 version has spy ware...


If going to control panel and look for the program in "uninstall program", then try actually going to where the Webroot Spysweet is installed.

For example, and most likely, it is installed in C:\Program Files\Webroot Spysweep

AFter finding the folder, delete it and any other files related to this program.

Hope this helps!

SpySweeper Anti Virus conflicts with Trend Micro AntiVirus


I would remove Spy Sweeper and Trend Micro. Then I would install the free versions of AVG, Ad-aware 2008, WinPatrol SpyBlaster and ScrubXP .

I have been using this combo for years and have had no problems as long as you keep them updated.

Spy ware


It depends on the infection. My first recommendation would be to ditch Trend Micro, and get a better antimalware program (it's not very good compared to alternatives). Much better alternatives include; 1. NOD32 (or if you want the suite, NOD ESS) www.eset.com 2. Kaspersky www.kaspersky.com 3. Avira www.free-av.com 4. Avast www.avast.com 5. Malwarebytes AntiMalware www.malwarebytes.org Each of these include trials and/or free versions that you can use to get rid of the infection. I'd also recommend following it up by posting a HiJack This log to one of the many support forums available, including TeMerc Internet Countermeasures; www.temerc.com/forums To do so, please see the following instructions; http://temerc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=18 A list of other trusted support forums can be found at; Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals http://asap.maddoktor2.com

Computer too low


AVG is good anti virus software which do not slow your system down and they do a free version, SuperAntispyware is also a good spyware program and again it's free.
If you google these you'll find them easy enough.
