Does the term "pap smear" have to sound so disgusting? I mean they could have come up with a different name. It just brings up images of a doctor with a lump of poo and some kind of plastic smearing implement.

People, people, ,getting rid of spyware is not that easy, downloading one antispyware and cleaning won't do the trick.


Go to majorgeeks.com go to the forums and the spyware forum.

they have a step by step procedure to get rid of most spyware.

As part of it you will download an application named hijackthis, this application will produce a log that you will probably don't understand, but don't worry, post the log on the forum and they will tell you what to do.

Then make sure you install a proper antivirus with spyware protection such as Symantec, McAffee, Panda or Trend Micro.

don't download applications, games, screen savers or funny cursors, and especially, not fancy toolbars, unless you really, really trust the site.

If you install an application that intends to install a toolbar say NO.

Don't go to porn sites, not only will get you a lot of spyware, you will also grow hair in your hands.

Download spybot and adware. Plus delete all cookies and temp file after using computer. Run adware after each time you use the internet. Use your antivirus program every week or so. Delete all documents that aren't needed on your computer as well.

that would take him/her ages and it's not necessary. You don't need to delete "documents" (what's that?) and don't go on deleting files you don't know what they are because you will end up reinstalling the OS.

Cookies are mostly harmless, it's not worth wasting time with them, they can't do much and if you delete cookies, you will find you have to login to wtaworld every time for example.

Temp file are ok if they are not infected, and deleting some of them may cause the machine to run slower, plus, you won't find all of them, they are all over the place.

Adaware and spybot are not enough by any means, they are a good complement but the main program to run and clean is hijackthis. If you get a browser hijacker you won't get rid of it with spybot or adware, and there are some nasty little things that cannot be removed without some degree of skills because they attach themselves to OS processes such as winlogon.

I have on my computer a thing called "my documents" or all the media files, word processing documents, picutures, music files etc.. are. They are files, but you made them or downloaded them. If you don't need them, get rid of them because them clutter up your memory. That's what happened to my computer because my sister got the memory basically down to 0 when you downloaded 500 pics for her Xanga and Myspace sites. It makes your computer run better if you have more memory.
