Hi All

I volunteer at a computer center and we got infected. Someone brought in an infected computer and hooked it up to our network. The question I have is, is DrWeb a good program or is it spyware. One of our guys installed it and someone else says it is spyware. It does not show up in add/remove programs to remove it. We have a mess on our hands we are trying to clean up.

Thanks, Doug

DrWeb is not spyware it is used on the infection removal forum below this by well known advisers. There are other better scanners that you could use with drweb ,malwarebytes, super antispyware , and spybot search and destroy. These are probably the best virus scanners for most problems.

Doctor Web makes DrWeb antivirus. They are highly popular in Russia. They also offer free DrWeb CureIt to detect and remove latest virus and malware.

I would use all three recommend programs. Reason is that no one program catches all. I would also recommend scanning all computers before allowing them to hook into your network. I have malwarebytes, super antispyware on demand. I have never used DrWeb

No anti-malware scanner can protect against some doing this.
