ok...at this point i am getting agrevated and need help.

 

 

 

my computer tells me to download programs and then i do and they always end up as a free scan and i need to pay for the full thing to delete the spyware.

 

 

 

i am really at a loss and dont know what to do.

 

 

 

if anyone could tell me a program to download or what to do it owuld be greatly appreciated because all the messages of my computer being unsafe and the lag are not only annoying but make me a little worried because i dont want my stuff stolen or anyhting.

Here's what I use:

 

 

 

Spybot Search and Destroy (free!) Detect and remove spyware.

 

http://www.safer-networking.org/

 

 

 

LavaSoft Ad-Aware (free!) Fights spyware.

 

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

 

 

 

AVG Free Virus Scanner

 

http://free.grisoft.com/

 

 

 

NEVER trust websites or popups that say you have spyware (unless you recognize it as coming from a valid program on your computer (such as one of the above)). If you're unsure as to weather or not a spyware report is valid, close it and run one (better yet, all three :twisted: ) of the programs above. If you find lots of spyware on your system, make sure you reboot and scan again after you remove it. If something keeps coming back, google it and see if you can find help for removing that particular program.

You sure the programs didn't pick that up? Did you scan with all 3 programs? Were they updated?

get windows defender too

 

 

 

and don't touch the popups. my brother got this stupid thing called spyware quake on my computer and it took forever for me to get rid of it.

 

 

 

the easiest way really is to just download the trial version of prevx1 and let it scan. it's a 30 day trial i believe and it lets to delete stuff without having to pay
