My computer is infected by Winpup32. Spybot finds it but can't clean it. I have tried Malware; No Adware; a-squared etc. etc.etc.

Most of them do a scan of my computer and find various things but none of the other except Spybot say that it is Winpup32.Also they tell me after the scan that I have to pay if I want to go any further.

I am now resigned to the fact that I will have to pay but I want to make sure that one I buy will actually clean the infection.

Can someone please advise?

I should have said 'you decide' or 'your decision', I'm sure you know what I mean.

I had a look at the manual removal instructions, but being a mere woman, didn't have the foggiest where to start.

It's all like double dutch to me.

Is it possible for one of you guys to give me instructions on how to do this manual removal?
