I am a little confused by the Automated Removal Instructions for SPYDAWN posted here


at the end of STEP # 8 Disk Cleanup. Its says to go to Step # 11?

Does this mean you should not complete steps 9&10 ?????

This is confusing to me or I'm reading too far into it.
Could I get some input on this

Steps 9 and 10 are providing some specific information of what to do while in the process of doing disk cleanup. It is after disk clean-up is completed that you do step 11.

I hope this clarifies things for you.

i had the spydawn virus and as a 'not so clued up user' was worried about doing the removal process, so i just did a system restore to the day before and it was sorted.
