Hello, I have contracted the infamous spyware, Spyware Guard 2008, I also have the pop up windows securtity center thing giving my false baloons/warnings. I have downloaded Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009 trial edition, seems to be a great virus/adware remover, however I am unable to update it because the adware that I have been infested with will not allow me to update it or access certain webpages with Internet Explorer. I have also downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, well just the setup portion anyway. It will not install on my infected pc, I have tried changing the file name and have changed the extention name(as said to do in other post) and still nothing. I am about an inch away from smashing the infected pc and just putting all my music and movies on my external. I was successful on installing the full program of Kaspersky, am just unable to update the definitions so the software is useless. If there is another way to update it I am more then glad to try (I have installed Kaspersky on my wifes pc and updated and registered her version, I copied her files in her application data folder onto my external and put them with my pc and told kaspersky updater to look in such folders was successful with 5% of the updates but not nearly enough to make a difference). I also installed Malwarebytes on my external and when plugged into the infected pc it will not open at all like something is blocking it form working. Also just a heads up I can not access any of my hidden folders or files because
