    well CA you have a problem

    the best thing to do is to eliminate possibilities.

    run these three programs ordinary scans then we can look from there.

    From my notes

    Also while your computer is in good nick you should download and install Superantispyware and Spybot –Search and Destroy because when malware gets going you will not be able to access the net.

    Clean Up Computer




    Has a stop homepage from being altered which is good

    Can reset windows defaults in various parts

    Download and run superantispyware. I was put onto this program because of an annoying popup (XP or Vista plus all OS preceding)

    Install it and set the preferences to monitor your home page.

    Set up tick boxes that you want in the other tabs as you require.

    You don’t need to run it at startup unless you want the antispyware protection 24/7.

    Note Superantispyware has powerful reset tools that will set stuff back to windows defaults.

    To use these tools click preferences >repairs. This may be handy to reset IE URLS if you have annoying pop ups.

    Superantispyware is a good program and remember to update it before scanning. A scan may take 45mins. Just run a scan for the first attack.

    Spybot – Search and Destroy


    Download spybot search and destroy. Through its immunize page and link to javacools spyblaster, spybot can manage activex problems which is extremely difficult for antispyware programs to find. Also just run the scan for first attack.



    Windows Live Onecare


    Onecare safety scan fixes registry and finds temp files that nothing else seems to find.

    Choose the Beta Edition link for vista users.

    It does registry, spyware , virus , disk clean up and defrag

    XP Users http://onecare.live.com/site/en-ca/defau...

    Vista Users


    Run the full safety scanner, it takes a few seconds to install the scanning files but when you start the scan, it takes 2 hours or more. Let it load the scanning tools, then start the Safety Scan. So once it starts to load the safety scans' x file of x , you can leave the computer and go to bed etc.

    Then at the end of the scan it asks you to set it running full time.

    Think twice about setting it to run in the background as it could be another thing to slow you down. However, it may be worth while if you have no other security programs running.

    Consider the following options:

    I personally run Norton 360 which is full internet security and run superantispyware when I want to.

    So if you don’t have a decent internet security program then perhaps run the superantispyware with your antivirus in the background.

    If you sick of antivirus programs that don’t work perhaps run onecare full time and run superantispyware whenever.

    Now you should be flying and Onecare has even set up a new system restore point for you.

    Note onecare does other stuff as well. Click on the menus on the LHS column., but all of this is done if you click Safety Scan.

    add onecare to your favourites



    Over time IE7 seems to set its own (or programs do) tick boxes in the advance tab.

    In IE7 Tools >Internet Options >Advance Tab

    Click Restore advance settings defaults button.

    Then scroll the listings down to near the bottom and:

    Tick empty temp files when browser closes (this empties the cache, which if not empty, will stop you from going online).

    Bullet disable phishing filter (optional. Leave it on if you want that type of protection, usually for financial data like internet banking)

    Delete Browser History, cookies, add ons, the whole lot regularly.

    Close the browser to set the settings.


    NOTE: 2008 will be the year of add on malware and spyware. I advise NOT to install active x when asked to on unknown websites. If you allow an active x install and it contains adware or such, no antivirus or anti-spyware will find it, because you have given permission to install it. The cleanup programs think that you want it installed. It will be very difficult to remove.

    Phishing Filter

    When first released, phishing filter slowed IE7. Apparently, Microsoft has fixed this through the windows updates. If you like you could try to run it - bullet the enable.

    Only run one phishing filter program, and only run one firewall program.


    Fixing Your Computer

    Run the scans of the three programs above. If your computer is still faulty then you have to go deeper with the features mentioned.

    First, if you run 2 or more anti-virus they conflict, this can reduce security by up to 60%. I advise downloading a new anti-spyware scanner like Spybot search and destroy, update it and run a new scan. Then decide which anti-virus you want to keep and dump the other. You can unistall spybot if you want once your machine is clean. Check your add/remove programs in Control Panel, uninstall ALL toolbars, internet optimisers and search assistants except the yahoo, Google and MSN toolbars. These are open doors to junk, and since the are installed on the machine are largely ignored by spyware and virus software. Personally I would unistall ALL you current virus software, as it is likely it has become indfected, and download AVG free from http://free.grisift.com. This now includes spyware porotection, and during install to several machines has found and removed spyware that other (well known commercial) software had missed.
