180 Search Asistant -spyware? cant uninstall it

  decoratorman 20:46 23 Oct 2004

I noticed that I have this programme appeared.
Running XP , tried removing it in add/remove programmes.
A box comes up saying that I have to connect to the web to uninstall , when I click O.K. everything freezes and I have to shut down the computer with the off button.
What is it , can I get rid of it ?

Update and run them.

Had the same thing and as per Dan the Confused

Used Ad-Aware and got rid of it!

Ad aware did the job.
Easy to use as well .
It found a load of other stuff as well.
I had been using Spy - Bot but i'll stick to AD-AWARE NOW.

decoratorman - it is often valuable to use both spybot and adaware together.
