H Skidzy I have downloaded programme and it has scanned but now asking for license key. 'Get Key' link leaads to software puchase site. Do I have to buy this now?

The license key is only for the pro you do not need to buy this program.

Sorry to be a nuisance.

It has found loads of coolies/malware etc. but in order to remove it takes me to a home page where it wants me to buy the software.

try this, and it is free click here

Ive just ran MBAM though nothing found it does not ask me for a key.

Ok if you are still having problems,run SAS = Superantispyware Free version click here update first and then boot into safemode and run Superantispyware.

Mbam is in the link i provided earlier and if i assume correctly,Amer should be currently using this.
Though i cannot see why it asks for payment,unless he/she has clicked on the purchase link.

the link u set didn't work for me, hence my post. Didn't intend to duplicate.

Sorry guys, this virus is driving me nuts. On the original link provided by Skidzy. What should I have downloaded. Have I clicked the wrong software, I downloaded Xoftspyse.

  skidzy 22:39 14 Aug 2008

no problem here in IE and Firefox with the Bleeping Computer link and its download of Mbam,though a second option is always good.
