Just recently i got suckered to a bogus paypal site which resulted in me being left me with a dreaded "Amescisco keylogger V1.".
This was picked up with webroot spyblaster but it couldn't get rid of it.
So in total panic i formated my hdd twice then reinstalled windows.
Just finished putting software back on and did a scan just to put my mind a rest and IT'S BACK !!!!.
Can anybody help me get rid of the bloody thing ?.
Does it live in my bio's or something?.

and do you need to disable system restore before you run any Spybot stuff?

Please be aware many forum members will not respond to a 'Help' subject, even if they know the answer :-)

I fully appreciate that you would like someone to help you, but a brief description of the problem would elicit a much better response.

I am only here because of curiosity, and I know not how to help


Is that the case then. I've not heard that before.

I will respond to any heading I am here to help

Ah, so is it the number of exclamation marks that count? :-)

I did not know that exclamation marks could count

I'm a novice but I am aware that for certain instances you have to disable system restore temporarily, run the anti-virus or anti spyware then restore system restore back to how it was.

My Computer/Properties/System Restore/Tick Turn off System restore.

Worth a go and I can't see how it can harm anything. Others are better placed than me to advise you though.

It is in the Master Boot Record.

fdisk /mbr

to remove. Nothing to do with System Restore.
