    Default Adware and Spyware Help

    Not sure if this would go into the link area. If it does move it there. Looking around some other forum. And I found this forum addressing SpyWare Removal and such, I skimmed it and looked around. Might as well show it to others who have the same problem (I dont have that much SpyWare on this computer) So this is for whoever is interested.

    For those of you that want a fast and fairly accurate response for your HiJackThis Log then try this, not perfect but decent:

    Good Luck with whatever you need help in over there.

    XoftSpy owns. At the expense of it destroying IE (which I never used much anyway) it removed every bit of SpyWare I had.
    On topic: Neato, I never knew there was a forum devoted to anti-spyware. Thanks for sharing it.

    I concur, I use nothing but Ad Aware SE and it cleans my computer quite effectively.

    My modules and processes own yours. I had as much spyware processes as you had processes total. My total number of objects scanned is much lower than yours as well.

    Wow... if you bothered to read this thread or go to my link and browse around. You would notice that a link for both Spybot and Ad-Aware are posted. Also some other good stuff there. As for bad things? I dont have a Screenshot, but when I first scanned it on this computer, I had about 1,000. Now I scan like once every ... I dont know. I scan whenever I remember, which isnt alot. I have like 22 pieces now.

    Nickolay what are you running in the DOS Prompt in the backround.

    Im going to download adaware and see how good it is. I currently use SpyBotS&D and have never tried anything else, when I said ad-aware sucks I based it on what most people I know had said about it. It gave my family's computer a shitload of adware, but it was an old version of it.

    I ran paint for the screenshot, as it was normally disabled.

    i really doubt the adware would come from ad-aware

    No, our school is too incompetent to handle such software.

    The security at my school is rather amusing. Modifying the desktop is disabled (easily bypassed), Run has been disabled (DOS Fixes that nicely), and you can't access any drive by using Windows Explorer, but My Computer still works just fine. The command prompt was also removed from the Start menu, but it takes all of 30 seconds to navigate to it from My Computer. A piece of software called SynchronEyes was also installed recently, but it took me about 15 seconds to remove it.
