Or rather, my boss's computer. Windows XP Pro. The first time I encountered yourprivacyguard, I ended up reinstalling Windows XP. However, this time it is only to be used as a last resort. Could I have 1) Basic information on this bugger (is it spyware, malware, adware, a backdoor etc) 2) Info on how to remove it, preferably wihout reformatting/reinstalling windows. please? Also, on another note, I currently use avast! antivirus, comodo firewall and Spybot S&D on my home computer. Is there anything I should install or remove to make my computer more secure? Thanks in advance, Rahman.
