OK so I said i would work on my friends laptop since he said he was having problems. Did he have lots of problems ... First thing i Notice is his Anti-virus was never actually installed and since i didn't have the key handy that came with the lap top I went ahead and got him a Anti-virus program downloaded and did a Boot scan and probably got ride of well over 1000 hits that it noticed without even being updated, I then updated it and continued the scan to get ride of more of it,
I notice that he had some pesky adware so i went ahead and downloaded spybotS&D and Ad-Aware updated and got ride of a lot more ... But then i noticed he had some other really Pesky adware. So an a attempt to cleanse his laptop and found Smitefraud fix and Vundo Fix got ride of most them and also got AVG anti-spyware to get rid of some of the others.
The problem is I am still having the occastionaly POP up or Win32: trojan-gen being caught by the Anti-virus i have installed, I can only think that there is still a few viruses,spyware, or adware that are not being caught by the those programs listed.
