alright. so i have something on my computer, it's called spyware 2009 (just to be clear, it's not a spyware scan, it's spyware/ a virus in it's own). this thing will not get picked up on any scan that i have, and i can't seem to manually find the files where it's saved. i've been searching for a good 2 days now. no luck though. it's annoying me to no extent, so someone... please help lol! anyone have experience with a virus like this? anyone know a way i could find it?

S***... you're onto me.... so now for some reason it won't let me run the installer for malwarebites for some reason. i think it's the damned spyware 2009 thing causing this. should i go to another computer and burn the installer to a disk or something and then try and run it on the infecter one?

Redownload and rename the installer.

Also, If it doesn't work, trySUPERAntispyware Yes, the name is kinda dodgy but it is an EXTREMELY well-done Antispyware.

well malware bytes will not install. i can't make the installer run. not even in safe mode. i'm downloading superantispyware as we speak. let's see what happens.

i couldn't get anything to run. my computer won't let me install anything right now. it's because of the malware. i deleted the .exe file for it because that was the only one i could fine. it's more of a temporary fix actually. i'm going to reformat this soon and just start over fresh. i'm just going to back up all of my music and fix any spyware problems once and for all. my computer is a glitchy load anyway. it's time to fix all of these damned problems.

#23
also, just to elaborate a bit more, the glitches i've been having are the stupid "can not access file" and "file not found" popups from my system. it's all because of the malware because they began when it attacked but... i can still access the files that are supposed to be "not found"... i don't understand it. it doesn't matter though. i have more glitches than that but at least i took down that obnoxious spyware 2009 window for now. it's still in my system somewhere but like i said, when i reformat that will all be gone.
