Ok, here we go.... I need guidance removing the remnants of spysheriff...... Yes, it showed up out of the blue over the weekend. I did remove the .exe file with add/removed programs and stopped the svchost.eve process that was tying up the processor time using the windows task mgr to free up the computer. Usage is now normal but I haven't turned off my computer for fear of it regenerating the next time I turn it on. I'm using windows XP home edition. My protection is pretty lame it seems. Yes the desktop is still frozen with spysheriff's message board. I've read thru 3-4 removal instruction sets that are posted on the internet and I've down loaded most of the freeware required for the fix. I'm a bit twitchy about using hijackthis.....it looks to easy to make a vege out of my dell; and with me not being a programmer, its like letting your car mechanic do brain surgery. Thanks in advance!
