hi gudulf
just wasted an hour
downloaded the spy thingy and used it to scan, found lots of viruses and malware then it wants me to buy the bloody thing before i use it

any free tools out there to get rid of this thing

What have you run? "Spy thingy" doesn't help us or you. Have you run Ewido and have you run superantispyware,(both free) and links given. If so what are the results?

hi guys sorry for the lack of information, i thought gudgulf would reply, he sent the link for spyware remove in the earlier message

the thing is its actually my father in law computer, im over the road and running between the two trying to fix it for him, hence i coudnt remeber what it was called

ive tried spybot, adaware etc
i looked at earlier postings and found a small programme to use with ewido, its smitfraudfix, but when i start it in safe mode my keyboard dosnt work to any any key to continue, the keyboard is a usb connection do they work in safe mode, or is this another programme

sorry again for the lack of info but im getting stressed, it said to use smufitfraudfix before ewido so not tried that yet

oh its spy hunter the programme
it says its free until you down load it waste an hour to detect them and then it wants you to pay for it to remove them
getting pissed now!

hi rdave
the programme link you posted is also for spy hunter, its not free, any free ones out there
