Hello, I have spyware called psguard. I have done a search in my computer, and deleted all of the files that came up. I also ran spysweeper many,many times, each time it comes up, each time I delete it, and each time it comes back. I don't know how to get rid of it, everytime I do get a virus or something I take it to a computer person, but it is costly. I need to find a way to do this myself. Please help.

Have you tried running your anti-spyware applications in Safe Mode?
Are you sure that what you are finding after deleting these is not their being in a quaratine file (have you checked the path to what is being found?).

Yes, I have. I looked again, there are two files that it must come from I guess, but I can't delete it because it says "Cannot read from the source file or disk", other times it says, it can't be removed because someone else is using this application or something, and it says it may be in a hard drive on this computer, or on a network.

In spysweeper, it says sometimes I can't delete it because it still contains folders, and that I should manually delete it through windows explorer, I know where that is, but I can't find anything related to psguard.

A solution would be to post a HJT log to the appropriate forum, where our volunteer staff can work with you to eradicate the malware. Instructions for posting, and the procedure involved can be found here:

Carefully read and follow the instructions. Please be patient after posting, since logs are taken in a first-posted/ first-reviewed order, and there are members ahead of you in the queue.

Regards,
John
