Is Superantispyware really necessary? I run McAfee with spyware protection and it finds nothing either. It is just that I do not trust the user of this computer so I would like to keep an eye on the possibly of it being infected. So does Kaspersky saying I am clean really prove anything to put my mind at ease?
That would be pretty effective.
Do you have an Antivirus installed?
This scanner may still remove other items.
Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
- Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use SUPERAntiSpyware to scan and remove malware from your computer Guide.

- If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.

(If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)

I use ccleaner. Isn't that basically the same thing?
I would say so. I wanted to remove tracking cookies to and clear the temp folder.
