Hi there TCG,

I'm a newbie here & before I ask for your help- i'd firstly want to say thanku for having such an open, seemingly honest website that really helps out. I've had a prob with spyware.axe on my pc for a few days now & me, being a novice in the spyware dept. have searched the web non stop for days to find out whether that, that what downloaded itself- helps to stop the malware was the real deal. Of course it wasnt & your website proved most helpful in trying to fix my problems. I've read many threads here and seeing as though i'm running XP- I've picked from certain threads posted here to do the following;

It llooks like you've done a good job -

Turn off restore points, boot, turn them back on – here’s how


That should clear up the reports of things found
DownLoad EasyCleaner http://www.majorgeeks.com/download414.html

Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons – I do not recommend
using the Duplicates files button
as many dupes are there on purpose.

Not all files will delete – that is normal.

In the unnecessary button I check the top 4 entries

Empty the recycle bin
Get all of these and/or verify you have the current versions

SpywareBlaster 3.5 http://majorgeeks.com/download2859.html
SpyBot V1.4 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html
AdAware SE 1.06 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
MS AntiSpy - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...a2-6a57-4c57-a8bd-dbf62eda9671&displaylang=en (XP and W2K only)

DownLoad them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware, MS AntiSpy (W2k/XP) and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
In SpyBot - After an update run immunize
