Hello everyone,

I found this site through Google while trying to make a computer behave. I had a particularly nasty piece of adware/spyware that wouldn't go away. I found a tutorial here and was able to get rid of it quickly. Excellent site... lots of good information.. I plan on making a donation as soon as I get paid for this cleanup job.

Hi again and thanks!
CrazyMick :thumbsup:

Actually.. I have used quite a few of them. Short list:

LSP Fix - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-lsp-fix-to-remove-spyware/
Windows Startup Locations - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-program-automatic-startup-locations/

I've also used bits and pieces of a few others. I have quite a few articles from here and elsewhere that are printed in a binder that I now take with me on my "spyware removal" jobs. That plus a CDRW with utilites and their updates. I honeslty believe I could make a living doing only this. I have donated to both Adaware and Spybot and will donate to here soon. If it were for places like this and programs like those.. my job would be much harder.

I will say this.. learning how to get rid of this stuff has forced me to learn more about the registry that I ever wish I knew. ;)

It's all good though, part of being a nerd.

Thanks again
CrazyMick

Anymore, computer security is not the sole provinance of nerds, since it effects every computer on the net. It is good that you are willing and able to help others with their (usually self-caused) computer security issues, and there ARE people making a living removing spyware and teaching uninformed users about computer security best practices.
The tutorials are great sources of information, and our HJT team of volunteers is always ready to help people with some of the harder problems. BC has just added a database of startup applications/programs that you may find useful.
Never hesitate to post a question or problem to a forum, and hopefully you will have so time to answer some yourself.

Welcome to BC!
Regards,
John
