I didn't really have many symptoms other than when I clicked a link in google, it would never take me to that link, always to yellowpages.com or something else as strange, and my computer has been locking up a lot lately. My bit defender found the iamfamous during a scan this morning and said it couldn't remove it. I knew I should have gotten some kind of spyware remover, just never got around to it because I kept thinking my husband would fix Ubuntu and I wouldn't have to worry about it. But, he's been busy and therefore, I still can't boot unto ubuntu so I need to get this removed! Now that I have followed all the steps, my computer is actually slower than when I started. Not sure what's up with that. I discovered after I went through everything that bit defender was running during the super spyware remover and hijackthis scans, because when I rebooted after malwarebytes told me to, it came back on and I just didn't think about it. If I need to do anything different, please let me know.
