Stubborn Spyware

  nooney 21:19 30 Jul 2004

Running Spybot locates problem intruders but cannot shift them.Running Adaware locates different intruders and shifts them OK.
Some are located in Temp files but using IE6 I cannot delete those files as the computer justs "hangs"
Searching the archives I see that others have experienced similar problems with no answers!
I am using XP and will try most things before I re-format.
Any body any ideas?

Reformat is a bit drastic.

Try running CleanUp! click here or deleting them in Safe Mode. Running Ad-aware in Safe Mode can be a successful solution for this sort of problem. To get into Safe Mode, restart then keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen appears, then select Safe Mode from the menu that should appear.
