    Download and Install RogueRemoverFree

    Next do a scan with MalwareBytesAnti-Malware and Spyware Terminator.

    that one is resilient - best removed by connecting your hard drive to another computer & scanning it
    Intel Core i5-3470 CPU
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card
    Enermax Tomahawk II 500W PSU
    Antec 300 case
    Win7 Pro (Action Pack :D)

    surprisingly quick even without an SSD

    The most common spyware removal tactic is to uninstall Antivirus 2008 by using the "Add/Remove Programs" utility.

    And then run HJT, Spybot, Spyware Terminator etc.

    Not too hard.
    wipe your paws.

    I'd advise you to disable system restore first, and run Malwarebytes in safe mode.

    Then get Trojan Remover, update it and run a scan. Run all the utilities from that menu also.

    There is a .bat file available called "roguefix_2.190.bat" Google for it!

    Boot into safe mode, double click the bat file and it will remove all trace of these infections.
    I have now used it successfully on 3 infected machines.

    Minster - Just an update on the roguefix_2.190.bat - the latest variants of that Spyware are not being completely removed with it ( so it appears) - Ran it on 2 PC's today then Malwarebytes and removed even more - as well as Spybot S& D & Spyware terminator needs to be run.

    Still even after that found 4 more entries in the Reg that had to manually delete.

    Seems to be "doing the rounds" again since Monday I have collected 8 PC's in the workshop with all different variants of that bug - 3 more to get before the weekend.

    But if any one wants the roguefix_2.190.bat you have to get it from Rapid share as lots of other sites have removed it from downloading.
