Hello, I came here because recently my little brother downloded Spy Doctor 2007 and Winantivirus and it came loaded with spyware like Virtumonde, PurityScan and Mirrar Webband. I was reading the forums and downloaded VundoFix and VirtumondeBeGone and got rid of all the Virtumonde except for one that keeps installing itself again in the registry everytime I reboot my computer but that's not the biggest problem because I quickly go to the registry and delete it again. Mirrar Webband was easy to find and got rid of it. I thought my computer was clean but when I ran Spy Sweeper(which is a trail version and don't remove) again it found another PurityScan.

The name of the file is C:\Program Files\Common Files\Yazzle1281OinAdmin.exe

I go and search for the file in Program Files>Common Files> and can't find it anywhere, I also turned on the Show Hidden Files and Folders option and it don't appear. I even went to Start>Run>Cmd and try to find it there but I can't seem to find it either cuz maybe I'm doing that wrong.

How can I remove it? Any help would be greatly appriciated, thanks.

Hi OmegaXforce and Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Download and install RogueRemover. Follow the prompts to run a scan.

Thanks TMacK.

Well, I downloaded RougeRemover and ran a scan but it didn't detect any items.

I don't know where that file is, it's a pest! I know I got something because I receive a few unwanted pop ups when I'm online.

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

Um, that superantispyware thing doesn't look that good to me.

My McAfee SiteAvisor says it's not a good page.

Can someone else tell me if it's good? And if it doesn't have any Adware, etc.

Super Antispyware is recommended in our Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps.

It is a well recognized program, no worries about malware.
