Spyaxe - self removal

  Nellie2 09:42 14 Dec 2005

Ok, so not everyone has time to post on a specialist malware removal forum and wait for an expert to come along and help you out.

Nick, who is a malware removal expert, has a very good article in his blog, with pictures, on how to remove spyaxe. click here

If you are still having problems after following those steps then you will need one to one help on one of the anti malware forums that he links to.

For the uninitiated what is spyaxe? Is it a malevolent help program or is it a virus/spyware?

I'm no expert but I understand it to be a malevolent help program but there is masses of information on Google and this site if you have an hour or two to spare brows for it.

I must admit I don't understand how it gets on your machine in the first place

Latest AdAware update includes spyaxe removal

  Nellie2 22:49 16 Dec 2005

the last I heard on Adaware is that it is targeting spyaxe but depending on the variant it may leave some bits behind.

Lavasoft are working on this. However, in the meantime Noahdfear's tool is very effective.
