Spyware problem

  DMAN 18:13 04 Apr 2005

Ok I have the most annoying problem happening to my internet browser. I get a message first of all from microsoft windows security warning saying my windows is corrupted with spyware virus and I must patch my pc. I have installed service pack 2. Used adaware, spybot, microsoft antispy and still can't get rid of the bloody thing. I can't view pages as they get hijacked.

any ideas please

You don't say which browser you are using or whether you have any plug-ins installed such as Google toolbar etc.

Have you scanned all users with the antispyware?

Forgot to mention you must update all anti spyware immediately before you use it.

Ewido also does a very good job of removing Trojans
