My brother-in-law has managed to install awola and now I have to get rid of it. Any ideas? He lives 60miles away and is techno-phobic.

There are a couple of ways to remove this Spyware infection;

One is a paid for program,such as Spyware Doctor or the manual removal procedure (can be tricky) and not for the inexeperienced.

Manual removal; click here

Alternatively run Hijackthis click here and post the scan log click here here the help is free from the malware experts...please be paitent,they do get busy.

I looked on google and quickly scanned that link.

Didn't realise it was a trial which wouldn't remove anything.

Thank you all. I am using crossloop to access his pc, I have tried VoG link but everytime I try run a scan awola jumps in but will keep trying. Can I install all the above at the same time and run them one at a time.
no worries ened I have seen and installed loads that just scan

Garthy,you may need to boot into safemode and run the free apps given.
Superantispyware needs updating first,then boot into safemode and run.
same goes for Rogueremover.
