That is one heck of a lot of spyware beat my record and stuffed it!

I have found 600 reg entries on one computer + a few files etc and that was a real sod to clear out...

I am not going to ask what his main viewing topic on the net is.....

Although I'm sure you can get the beast cleaned up, I would give serious thought to backing up data, then do a clean install.

Nice little program. Used it on my own machine and cleaned up about 22MB of "crap" off my drive :lol:

Also, to make the long story short.. after I cleaned it up, he took it home and couldnt get it to connect to aol.. what did he do? went and bought a new computer :roll:

So I guess you will be getting a system to work on soon, or some one will once they infect it again....

Actually the sites involved arent that interesting..
In my experience most malicious content gets installed because of someone clicking on everything that looks inviting.
Im talking about chat sites, themes and icons, pretty backgrounds, toolbars, shopping discounts etc...
Since they seem so innocent thats where the trouble starts..

Anywho Oylpann, I hope youll be a good guy and send them some good downloads and links to help that new pc keep running.
