not just spybot i've had worse.

i'll check what programs i used i had like 3 things in the toolbar and my homepage was changed and i had some random "porn deleter" pop up every 5 minutes. one sec I'll find out the programs i used, they were all free/trials.

Spybot search and destroy, Got a little off
Ccleaner i'm not sure if it did anything but i'm pretty sure it helped.
Lavasoft Adaware
And Counterspy. Try counterspy. I remember i used all the others and got some off but most was taken off with counterspy.

ehh, probably wont do any good if you try to remove it from control panel. i used to have a big problem with that because it would keep downloading itself again. Run adaware and spybot. its always better to have more protection. download both and use one then use the other. tell me if it helps.

I have the EXACT same problem. It won't let me do a System Restore(tried 3 times with 3 different Restore Points). Spybot can't fix it. The good news is that there's no actual viruses/spyware/trojans/anything involved. I ran a full system scan with Norton and it found nothing.

System restore is probablly the quickest way to get rid of it if you dont have another program to remove it. Then download Ad-Aware, awesome freeware programe to remove spyware.

system restore, adaware, super anti spyware, avg anti spyware. Next time watch porn on firefox and buy a program that actively detects viruses/spyware/adware or somekind of firewall.

yeah dude, my stystem restore dosent work iehter, even after lots of differnt points. Upon loading up, it says "system restor failed" and windows carries on as normal. ive tried Norton, AVG, spybot, Spy sweeper all sorts, nothing found.

However i made the mistake of bear share, so i had to go into my c drive and delete all the files asociated, and since, i havent had many problems *touch wood*, toehr then system restore not working

You know, if the majority of people own a Mac, then hackers will start making virus programs that work for Mac, as well.

System Restore. Set it back to the day before it first happened.

I got a virus from one of the ads on here a couple months ago. I couldn't get it to go away, but I used system restore and everything went back to normal.

Also remember to back up your files next time. If everything important to you is backed up then next time you can just use the restore DVD or whatever to bring your computer back to its original form if system restore isn't working.
