Hi, As I was cruising around Bleeping Computer this morning, and my clicker finger twitched and I accidently went to the advertizing site, Invision Power Board. I went back to BC and about a minute later, my browser would not load any new pages. I was just going to shut down the Internet, and “ABRA-CADABRA”, My Websearch Tool Bar magicly appeared while I was watching the screen.
My question is, with the security I have, Norton 2005, enabled, and Microsoft Anti Spyware, active, how could this program get by them both? The Microsoft Anti Spyware, picked it up, after I removed My Websearch from Add and Remove Programs, just a little late in my opinion. By the way, Spyware Blaster, 3.3 dos not even list it.
With the good advice from Bleeping Computer, and Black Viper (I have used a lot of his settings for a year and half now) I have been able to keep my computer fairly clean, no easy chore with 3 children, and myself, using the Internet almost constantly. I still find that I spend about 2 to 4 hours a week cleaning bleep out of my computer, but to actually watch, what I consider to be mall ware, install itself and can't do anything to stop it , pisses me off! There otta be a law.
