  1. I've discovered that my comp is infected with SpyDefender. I would simply use Add & Remove Programs to delete it, but my boyfriend told me not to do that, as it could only make it worse..?? So, I'm confused. What's the best way to get rid of it?
    Thanks!

    Very important: Malware infections can lead to identity theft, credit card misuse, loss of funds from bank accounts, etc. Therefore, I strongly suggest that you read this thread before deciding whether to clean or reformat your computer.

    If you decide to clean your system after reading the above thread, please do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/spyware/malware preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HijackThis, ComboFix, and AVG Anti-Spyware logs as attachments, only after doing the above.

    Please post the results of the Panda Anti-rootkit scan as well.

    Regards :)

    This thread is for the use of Colliwog only. Please don't post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in our Security and the Web forum.
