I get SpyFalcon 2.0 poping up every few seconds saying my computer is infected. It wants me to buy it. I have followed BleepingComputer instructions and cleaned out all files, run adaware, spybot, norton anti virus 2006, house call anti virus, stinger and also run through the system restore procedure. I still cannot get rid of it. Can you help please.

Hello,

If you followed the instructions from the tutorial to get rid of Spyfalcon, you must be ok normally...
Unless you didn't follow them in the right way OR unless a new dll is here responsible; so let's take a look at that first..

I need to get an export of the files being started via the SharedTaskScheduler registry key.

Please download the following file and save it to your desktop:

getsts.exe

Once it has downloaded, please double-click on the file, which should now be on your desktop. When the program is finished, it will create a text file on your desktop called getsts.txt and open it in notepad.

Please post the contents of this notepad as a reply to this topic.

Hello miekiemoes
Thankyou for your reply. I actually found some previous instructions on removing Spy Falcon by deleting files through the safe start f8 function that has just now worked wonderfully.
I am so pleased. There seems to be good people on BleepingComputers so O am going to become an active member.
Thanks again for top help.

Good you could solve it.
In case it comes back, let me know. :thumbsup:

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
