Computer won't boot up

  Taffynuts 12:18 22 Dec 2005

Daughter's computer is 1 year old. Recently added wireless internet to it. She's a shopoholic and now we can't start it up because it takes an age, I believe due to adware, spyware and such stuff. What's the best way forward?

I would also recommend EWIDO click here to clean out any Trojans and Worms that might have got through, there is a free to dowload version which is very effective.

Also Diskeeper lite click here.

Cleaned as much as pos off with SpyBot, but it seems as if I have UnSpyPC on it, What is this?

UnSpyPC is a rogue antispyware application that produces false positive results used to provoke worried computer users to buy it unnecessarily. It can be stealthily installed along with other malware while browsing through porn sites and other affiliate sites. This application is a clone of another rogue antispyware named SafeandClean.

I have not been able to find 'dmlaz.exe' and 'idemlog.exe' but have gone back to a previous restore point which seems to have sorted it for now.
