I also have Spywarequake infestation.

I was able to delete the Spywarequake directory, and it seems to have stayed deleted, but that @#$%&* taskbar alert remains. Maybe the whole thing is still there hidden from my amateur attempts to find it.

I followed the instructions posted earlier in this thread, but I still have the fake "Virus Alert" flashing by my clock, and every few minutes, a "Warning" pops up. Although SpywareQuake appears in the Add/remove window of my Control Panel, Windows seems to ignore the command to remove it (even in safe mode) presumably because I previously deleted the directory.

When running smitRem, I saw a reference to something I think was called SpywareQuake "precall" or some such flash by, but it was gone before I could note it down.

Hoping for some expert advice, as reformatting that drive is not something I'm looking forward to!
