Anyway, 1-2 weeks ago I unknowingly installed some viruses/spyware on my computer without even knowing it. I have SpySweeper installed on my computer, yet it didn't catch it. I turned on my computer the next day......bam, pop ups and something in the bottom right hand corner telling me I had malware and telling me to install programs. I knew this was spyware, and that it WASN'T trying to help me out. I tried everything to delete it, I had 4 different anti-spyware and anti-virus software programs running to try and delete this bleep. Safe mode, normal...didn't work. I ended up giving up and formatting my computer. Perfect.
Then a couple days ago, I had a friend over. He went on his myspace and decided to click some link. My computer froze, and the day afterwards, I had the exact same crap as before. So, last night, I found out that CounterSpy will remove the spyware...however a day later, it came back. I just ran CounterSpy again, and its gone for now. What can I do to keep it gone?! I ran Hijack this and removed 2-3 items that I found were possible spyware applications, however, I'm still worried it'll come back.
I can run SpySweeper and CounterSpy all day and all night, they're still not finding whatever is re-installing this stuff. Hopefully somebody with some skills can tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks for any and all help guys!!
