Okay, so I'm battling a bunch of viruses because of: WinSpywareProtect. They say that they are a virus-battling program, but in fact, they let in viruses. They'll tell you that there a bunch of Trojan's and other viruses on your computer, even if there aren't, and say that you have to download their full version to destroy them. DO NOT BUY IT. It's a scam to get your money. Just wanted all of you to know about this scam, and that you shouldn't get sucked in. I'm gonna eat lunch, so if you ask any questions, I won't be able to answer for a while.

Thanks for the tip, viruses and keyloggers are nasty, i myself got rid of a keylogger recently, you can use spybot-search and destroy, its pretty good.

It just took me 4 nights to clean my comp from BIG problems. I was just about to clean the C:\ and start over. With persistance and help from a tech friend I found many free programs to clean it without deleting the C:\ If anyone needs help feel free to message me and I will send you the links to the programs that corrected my issues.

Yeah, I'm using a free anti-virus program to clean it up.

AVG Free + Spybot + ZoneAlarm are all the security I'll ever need. They are ALL free and don't have ANY problems with malicious software EVER.

I have AVG and I have never had any problems with viruses, until yesterday. But I'm taking care of it with, SuperAntiSpyware (free), and AVG (free). Soon those nasty pests will be back out on the cyber-street, away from my computer. biggrin.gif
