all i want is my internet back

  sharktank 16:09 02 Jul 2004

I have tried on several occasions to get rid of some spyware. when i have run spybot and adware and cleaned my computer my internet connection seems to die and all i can get is some page which is obviously stored on my c drive. it keeps on looping round. the only way i have found to get my internet connection back is to restore my settings using system restore. this also includes restoring the spyware. I use mcafee virus scanner. I think it is purity scan or incredifind that is doing the damage. I get very annoying porn ads. most other ads are blocked by adsgone.
my internet seems very slow and bit torrent keeps on crashing.

You could try a diff browser. Firefox and Opera both good and there are others,

Thanks for the help, I have tried the symantec removal but as the article says it has changed its name and i am not sure about deleting things in the registry. I have followed instructions for removal of the 2nd parasite with ease, which makes me wonder is there a remover that takes all the pain out of this. i already use the excellent lavasoft adware and i have used spybot. the latter being less successful. (it removes things but does not repair the links needed to access the internet).

Try this click here it's not free but it certainly got rid of the rubbish on my pc, Purityscan and the like,it mends all broken internet connections and does a check on every start up, free updates and free version upgrades.

Like yourself, I ran spybot s & d and Ad-aware, both flagged up these spyware but could not get rid of them.
