I thought I removed "Antispyware" with Microsoft one care but now it returned as "Your PC Protector" I was also receiving popups even with the popup blocker turned on. I started receiving these popups before "PC Antispyware" showed up and still after running MS one care.

Any help cleaning this stuff off?

Thanks

Thanks! I did find this after posting and it seemed to work very good, the only problem after running rkill.com my system slooowed waaay down, I re-booted and ran rkill again then continued with instructions and after a couple re-boots I was able to run the scan program and delete over 50 issues found by the program.

System seems to be running fine.

Thanks!!!!

Okay, good.

Some of the malware may have been saved in System Restore. To prevent possible reinfection, lets flush the restore points.

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.
