spyware/ Trojan help

loraleeAugust 31, 2012

I am in over my head.

There was a message popped up from my Superantispyware software.

I have tried three times to run and delete these. the software found 16 each time it runs it finds a different amount. I have not been able to get rid of this.

What is this and how do I get rid of it if the Software is not removing them.

Thank you for taking the time to answer.

I would suggest that you go to the Landzdown forum and have the team there guide you through the process of removing all the possible infections on your computer. By doing so, you can be fairly sure that your machine is clean.

Ok, I just read the link provided by bob414. Try that option first before you consider going to landzdown.

If after reading Bob's link you are not quite sure then download and install Malwarebytes, update it and run a full scan

Here is a link that might be useful: Malwarebytes download page

Thank you for your help everyone. The issue may be resolved. I updated the latest Superantispyware a few minutes ago and the message did not come back up after I rebooted. Seems like my spy ware was updated almost daily, but it was just old enough that it did not have the current fix that I needed.

You guys are super.

I just had a pop up with some "cookie download" file similar to a video or PDF file pop up on my screen. I ignored it, and I hope the owners of this forum will make sure we are not exposed to malware or spyware.

Neonrider I suspect that was a new warning that cookies are used. The UK (and possibly other nations?) issued instructions that sites must notify users about the cookies, you had to click to agree I think. Just a harmless feature alerting you to the use of cookies on the site.
