Hi, I've looked at all of your methods, and others online on how to remove spyware protect 2009 from my computer. At least I can use aol browser, but not IE. I've used AVIRA, aol spyware protection, adaware first with no luck. They didn't even find it.
So I went online to see how others got rid of it. I followed their directions. I tried shutting off system restore, then downloading malwarebytes. I couldn't get malwarebytes to run! It just created an icon, but didn't do anything. I then uninstalled it, turned system restore back on, tried to go back to an earlier time, but it wouldn't allow me to do so. I couldn't click the calendar to go back. I then tried another link to download malwarebytes again, but it did the same thing.
While I'm typing this, I just got a message from Norton pc checkup that they found spywareprotect, but it will cost me 129.00 to buy their software. Plus they have my performance as only 2 stars (fair)
I am really not very good at computer lingo, so if anyone can help me, please know I'm not a geek, just a person that can follow step by step directions. Thanks in advance to anyone who can advise.
