solved security toolbar removal

  1. Had security toolbar and all the problems that went with it - Tried loads of things suggested in this forum. Even downloaded and paid for Spynomore, which said it was a guaranteed fix for it. This didn't remove the Trojan - kept coming back when rebooting the machine. Finally ran combofix and this worked.

    Have I wasted my money buying Spynomore?

    I'm glad I found this forum to help me find out what was wrong

    "Note on SpyNoMore: SpyNoMore was listed on this page because of concerns with false positives. Testing with the latest version of the program indicates that the problems with earlier versions have been satisfactorily resolved. Thus, we can no longer consider SpyNoMore to be "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware."

    So be sure you're using the most current version.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Uninstall SpyNoMore from add remove programmes.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
