My computer has been invaded by malware called otshot which cripples Windows Live pictures and a number of other programs. Does anyone know of a free removal procedure?

Per what I have read on the web, there should be a listing for it in Add/ Remove. If there, try uninstalling from there.

Then do a search for otshot and delete. You may need to right click on its icons on the desktop and delete.

Use Ccleaner to remove temporary files, etc. Default settings should be good enough.

If the above fails to completely remove, use one or both of the programs below.
