hi - i'm 'infected' with the adware/spyware called AURORA - PART OF THE ABI NETWORK. I've tried using spybott search and destroy, but no luck. Can anyone help me get rid of these pop-ups as they are driving me nuts! Many Thanks.

If you have XP d/l MS Antispy, run it and delete all ity finds.....click here

You will also need to turn off system restore before running MS Antispy

The easier way is to d/l a specific remover ......click here

VoG™@s link should not be used. It leads to a sopyware remover company that will charge for removing Aurora....the company is owned by Aurora...scam

..ahhh, I see they are not charging now but when running the programme it tries to change your seach engine and removes recently used programmes. I would be careful.
