Annoying spyware

By jojofo
Dec 23, 2008
  1. a friend from Canada seemed to get some spyware on his PC, and can't figure how to get it out, even with a few Superantispyware scans, which find nothing. I'm going to try to add a pic of the pop-up so someone who may have seen it can elaborate and possibly help. I'd appreciate any help I can get, cause I'm doing this over the internet thru a 'vent' server talking him thru stuff.
    Ok, can't get a pic in here because he saved a screenshot into Word and I can;t isolate the pop-up, but it has a black & yellow stripe shield and says System Security next to it.

    Hi jojofo

    When you post the picture can you please read through the 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions and produce ALL of the logs it asks for and post them in your next post. This allows us to search your system and hopefully determine anything on there that shouldn't be there.
