  1. So I have pretty much tried everything that has been posted on the website for all the spyware removal. Everything seems to keep finding things in my compiuter but it has not completely deleted it. The program giving me problems is called spyware strike. I dont have any of the winstall.exe or any of the processses mentioned but I do keep getting the "your computer is infected" and I tried the suggestions for that and still cant get that to go away either. A little help is needed please!!!!!

    Sounds to me like it is starting by your registry, via executable in your Temp directory, system restore, Prefetch or more likely HTML code on your temporary internet files folder. there re few other places where it could hide but try this first and if no joy or you need more instruction on how to do this, get back to me and i will tell you how.

    Delete all entries in those folders, empty your recycle bin and reboot
