Morning johnrocker,

Currently, he has run the following programs

AVG Anti Virus (Full Scan)
Spybot (latest version and definitions)
AVG Anti Spyware

I have mentioned to him to also run Super Antispyware.

Do you recommend anything else?

Is there a free program that will get rid of this?

I have done a search and it shows a program called STOPzilla Antispyware. However, I have never heard of it, and do not want to infect his computer even more.

Can anyone adise?

Many Thanks for your quick postings.

StopZilla is not listed as a rogue program click here but I would try SuperAntiSpyware first.

Thanks VoG™.

Just in the process of downloading this for him.

I will report back.

Remember to update then close all browsers. Run superantispyware full scan and it should ask to reboot.

My friend has run Super AntiSpyware and A2 and these have not detected it.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

I see that to remove problems with Stopzilla you have to pay $19.95. Is this worth the outlay generally or is there a different solution to this tricky problem?
