Malicious ware of any kind I've always supposed. Adware, spyware, trojans, homepage hijackers etc,.

I call it crudware but I guess they're the same thing. :D

What malware is supposed to be on your system? Is your computer playing up?

Well beetle,
Google reveals this little gem (http://www.breakthechain.org/exclusives/joybugs.html) where they say quite a bit about lemons and bugs.

Can we ask what little gremlin you are trying to remove? Might be able to point you in the right direction instead of having to resort to ESP.
Or are you going to drip feed it
