    Hi all,

    On my computer somehow or another someone installed this annoying program called SystemCop. It is obviously just a fake spyware program and its all just about hassling you until you buy the full version from them. I understand there are a couple of ways to get rid of it and came to the conclusion to use a program to get rid of the darn thing(as i thought it was safest). That is, rather than manually deleting the files or launching a program in safe mode or whatever. Im still open to those options though if you recommend them but basically I want to get rid of it completely without having to worry about any of those problems anymore. In other words I want my computer to be like it what it was before the program was installed with no worries about keylogging, identity theft etc. I have tried superantispyware but it didnt detect it undsurprisingly and I scanned with Spyware Doctor and it found all the threats, only I need to buy the full version which I am prepared to do if its the only or safest way. I was going to but decided to ask techguy first =P

    Bare with me as I am only 14 and dont know everything about this as it is my first encounter with spyware, viruses and all of that.

    Thanks in advance for any help at all or any clarification about what has been said.
