Hi, gang. Im really just looking for a quick fix for my husbands computer, which is infected with Think-adz. Ive uninstalled it via control panel, but its still there, and God knows how many registry entries remain. Im fairly computer-competant, and dont want to install a zillion more programs if I can avoid it. We already have McAfee and Ad-Aware, and have run them many times, but stuff keeps creeping back in.


PS... Why wont this BB software let me type an apostrophe?

I came tp BleepingComputer tonight because I was infected with SpyCrush. I'm using the latest Norton Products from Symantec. When Norton wouldn't remove it, I contacted support via live chat. When the support "specialist" couldn't fix it, he offered to send me over to some type pf "special" support department for only $99.95!!! I told him what I thought and then went searching on Google. That's when I found BleepingComputer. I found the instructions that I needed, followed them and VIOLA!!! No more SpyCrush!!! Now, as long as it doesn't come back!!!!!

I can't remember who posted the instructions for removing SpyCrush but THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! :thumbsup:
