A friend has the spyware Pest Trap on her laptop. I have tried Norton, SuperAntispyware, Adaware and AVG but they do not remove it. Does anyone know of a specific free program which will remove this particular pest?
TIA

Hi if you do a search in Google you will find many sites for a free download removal program if you know of a trusted site use that.

Google is always my first port of call! I am asking on this forum because all the Google so-called solutions were expensive and generally rogue spyware. I am pretty experienced in this kind of thing and I still have no program which will get rid of this pest FOR FREE..
If anyone has experience please advise.

I have dealt with this 'ransomware many times, it is a variant of Spysheriff. Go to this link click here and follow the instructions exactly..in a nutshell, download Smitfraud fix to your desktop, restart computer in safe mode, find the downloaded file, run, reboot.
