Hi, I think I've been infected with spyware.cyberlog-x and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried a few different removers but nothing has worked. I'm also new to using a computer in more ways than email and word so would appreciate any help anyone can help me with. Thank you.

The program in the link below removes Virus Burst. It might be simpler for you to use.

Thank you so much. The Rogue Remover worked great! No more pop up security messages - what a relief!

If the problem is resolved, then you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system if you use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recent Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Virus Burst is often accompanied with other malware. To insure you are clean and reduce the chance of reinfection you should follow up with scans using the programs below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
