    Buy a computer, or a set of operating system software... Linux will work.
    You have five spyware tools, but I don't see that you have a first class trojan tool installed.

    PSW.x-Vir Trojan DESTROY!!!

    Hey guys,

    I saw this blog after I was done removing the virus, and I thought I should spread the word that I found a great virus remover. Yeah it sucked getting the virus because it was a pain in the ****. Also you should know not to use any account that contains any personal information because the virus can infect and extract valuable person information. I was doing a little bit of research on the virus and found out that it was called Trojan SPM/LX and every few seconds a message would pop on my screen telling me to get the latest verson of some anti-virus remover...DONT DOWNLOAD IT. It was created by an unknown publisher, so that is the first sign it is not safe when downloading any file. My friends were telling me that I should go to a technition but I didnt see the need to. HERE YOU GUYS GO

    The instructions are here and the links to download the stuff. goodluck!
    I hope this helps!

    *NOTE*[/COLOR] if this does not directly connect you to the site then go to GOOGLE and type in the search box, PSW.x-vir trojan. It should give you a list of websites to visit, but the one I clicked on the link that said...and it should take you to a website called and the instuctions are there.
