    I've spent the better part of this weekend removing my first malware/adware infection, after having been online since '89.

    This was a rough one. BASTARDS!

    you should install ubuntu hardy. :D

    Of course, as a single mother I didn't appreciate spending my time this weekend reconstructing one of my work machines.

    I would have preferred to spend that time with my kids.

    I'm glad you had a good laugh.

    one program that works best removing these types of programs is smitfraudfix

    even the latest malware that is not detectable yet by your antivirus can be disabled by this program. Saves me a lot of time.

    I second that. I got unbuntu running on all my pc's and one of my old boxes is dual boot incase the wife wants to use MS office. I do not worry about defraging, spyware or viruses anymore.

    Plus it makes my older hardware run Hella Fast!

    If it makes you feel any better sine, some lucky gent earned a cool 10 cents off of infecting your computer and forcing you to spend all those many hours fixing it. Yep, a whole dime :D

    If you haven't already fixed it, also check out SUPERAntiSpyware, as well as Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.

    Smitfraudfix is the way to go. I shot myself in the foot like a jackass yesterday morning working on some code, even though I KNEW what I was looking for I couldn't get it out with Kaspersky/AdAware/Spybot. Smitfraudfix got it right away.

    Kaspersky is the best to PREVENT, but when you're already fucked Smitty's got ya covered.

    that's a false positive. Just make sure it's from their official website

    I saw that one on geekstogo, but I seemed to have gotten most of the crap removed with superantispyware & malwarebytes.
