First of all, yes I am aware of this site and the guide to remove it, but I can't. The closest I got was SpyLocked of my icon list next to clock on the desktop, but afterward my computer just shut off by itself and it rebooted with SpyLocked up and running again. I don't have the actual program pop up, it only shows the icon and pops up lil messages with warnings.

HERES HOW I GOT IT.....
Tryin to play an audio file...

HERES WHAT I TRIED
*I tried with SmitFraudFix(exact steps & more than once)

*also some other guides, that failed poorly(one that actually but requires buying..)

*also tried manually, but gave up..

I'm looking for the quickest, simplest way to remove it completely off the system of my computer!!!
Oh yeah, I need it FREE TOO!.

Super Antispyware has removed Spylocked for other users. There may be a new variant out there that the fix hasn't allowed for.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Bit Defender uses Activex, so it only works in IE. Try going into safe mode with networking. This will allow you to go on the internet. Turn off popup blocker in IE. I suspect malware is blocking you from accessing security programs. Do you have Hijack This on your computer?

I'd always recommend giving Prevx1 a try when the big players and and other useful programs like SuperAS fail. I regularly use this to remove the more stubborn infections and see good results.

It's a pay-for product but they do offer a fully functional free trial valid for at least 30days that will detect and remove any infections free of charge during this period. If you don't wish to keep it after cleanup you can simply uninstall.

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

UPDATE** After running Superantispyware, BitDefender, and SmitFraudFix several of times, SpyLocked is now terminated from computer(hopefully). It has not returned since reboot. Thank you all, I was starting to worry.

If your system is clean, then Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system if you use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

quietman7 thanx for the lookout. I turned off System Restore before I was infected, so I don't think that is a problem, but thanx for the reminder, I now have it back on just in case emergencies.
