Hi All,

I have discovered a program running on my computer called "PC Antispyware 2010", i believed it looked odd.
So i googled the name and found a huge range of remove proceeders (CONFUSED DOT COM!)

I found bleeding computers "Remove PC Antispyware 2010 (Removal Guide)
I then downloaded 'Malwarebytes' as described

Once the program had finished installing i received to errors

1st - Run-time Error 703 (0,7)
2nd - vbalsgrid6.ocx (didn't get the whole message

I am very STUCK!.

Many Thanks,

Mark Ballard

I have now worked out the problem.

I used Hijack this to delete the files mentioned in the 'Guide' & also deleted the Registery files mentioned aswell.

I was then able to use Malwarebytes to remove the rest.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

If you are certain you are clean, you need to flush your system restore as some of the malware may have been saved in it.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
