Hi guys and girls. Hope you are all well!
My brother-in-law has just phoned and has what appears to be some spyware on his pc. When he boots up (xp) internet explorer immediatly loads up and trys to find the page click here
He has Spybot and Ad-Aware installed, and also AVG and Zone Alarm. Has anyone come across this before, and if so, do you know how to get rid of the blasted thing?! Thanks.

Anyone?! If you need more info, please let me know as he's on the phone at the moment!

You could try Counterspy, its a free trial initially click here I've been using it for a couple of years now. Also perhaps try AVG antispyware click here

Congratulations you have beaten Google which finds nothing. Can you check the address again?

I couldn't find anything on google either which really surprised me it usually finds reams of stuff. The two programs were just suggestions, neither will do any harm but I have no idea if either of them will work.

I've had a look on google as well and it doesn't find much! Will ask him to try Counterspy and AVG Antispyware Totally-braindead. In the mean time, guess I better keep searching and see what turns up!
