I got spywarequake on my computer recently, followed the automatic removal instructions and it appeared to be gone (no more recurring messages appeared in my systray). About a week later, after leaving my computer on over night, I woke up and about 20 internet explorer windows were open and spywarequake had returned with its irritating "virus alert - your computer is infected! Critical system error! System detected virus activities..." message reappearing every few minutes. I again followed the automatic removal instructions but this time the systray icon/message remained. I followed the manual remove instructions but it remained (I found, renamed and ultimately removed xenadot.dl [but none of the other 3 .dll files mentioned]l in my system 32 folder). I began to repeat the manual remove process but when I found none of the 4 .dll files mentioned in my system 32 folder I stopped and came here. Is there anything to be done?
