Fraud basic scan loads involuntarily. Spybot picks it up as malware, two entries, but is unable to delete it, even after rebooting. Spybot gives the message;"some problems could'nt be fixed;the reason copuld be that the associated files are still in use (in memory)." "Hijack this" cannot fix either, saying that, I believe, the file is hiding in the host directory and access is blocked.
I found a website giving a bunch of program files to delete (to eliminate Fraud.BasicScan), but I am unable to access these files. I believe I have to run as an administator (for my home computer using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer), but this function is giving me problems.
As far as I can see, this fake antispyware program is not meesing up my computer, but I want to get rid of it, if possible. Adaware, malwarebytes and AVG (all freeware editions) detect no problems.
