Spyware Remover

Your first step in removing dangerous infections from your computer should be downloading a free program called Hijack This. Make sure you download the file and extract it to a directory on your hard drive, you can call it HijackThis. This is very important, because if you don't put hijack this in it's own folder you will not be able to back up files in case of an accident. Then navigate to that directory and double-click on the hijackthis.exe file. When the program is started click on the Scan button and then the Save Log button to create a log of your information.

You can copy and paste your log at Geeks To Go, Geeks To Go is a free service that will check your log and help you remove any infections.

I am not affiliated with Geeks To Go, but I have used their free service and I was very pleased with the results. The process of removing infections from your computer could take a day are even a week depending on how busy Geeks to Go is. It also depends on how well you can follow directions. Although Geeks To Go will give you step by step directions, you will need to have some basic knowledge of working with a computer. After your computer is clean you will be given some tips to help keep your computer clean, I recommend you use the tips, because with so many infections you need to do what you can to make sure your computer stays clean.
