(jumps in, both feet and requests the answer to a conundrum.)
After my tragic and very rude introduction to Trojans, malware, Virtumonde, and conhooks (they do say it never rains but it pours eh?) over one ill-fated weekend, I did what any self respecting Antipodean wench might do. I swallowed half a bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (the highlight of the weekend as it turns out) and opened my wallet and happily paid my dues to a number (yes, frustration drives me to excess) anti spyware products. It might be prudent to add now that I've been surfing the web with gay abandon for many years relying solely upon Spybot-search and destroy, Ad aware SE personal and AVG (all free applications that I found perfectly adequate!)
To cut a long story short one of those purchases was 'Antispyware bot'....it appeared to work well ....until I ran other applications and found 'rogue spyware' popping up, willy-nilly in all of them! After ignoring this for sometime...(I'm stubborn and was by now feeling warm and fuzzy from the wine
) I decided to delete this rogue spyware that kept being detected. *POOF* ..... my purchased antispyware was swept into cyberspace ....never to be seen again!
So! My question is....is it one of those 'dodgy brothers' programs one reads of (and if so, how do I get my money back?? .....yeah I know, I live in hope
Thank you for your patience.....I will not be beaten!
