The HJT forum is not the location for posts of this type, so I've moved your topic to a more suitable location.

If you are experiencing difficulties with your computer and need help, post a HijackThis log in the "HijackThis Logs- Help with spyware removal" forum and wait for a helper to answer you.

Thanks for the information.

I'm not a particular fan of McAfee, but since it's free I'm going to try it - just installing it now.

set a restore point
installing is easy
getting rid of is hard
let us know what the performance is (and not just speed)

Considering McAuful's long history of trashing sys when trying to remove F/Ps, I suggest you double check each item found before 'fixing'. Actually, that's a good idea with the use of any scanner but especially with this crappy ware. At least they keep all the local repair techs in bussiness.

Gee, I'm so glad that I don't need scanners anymore...since early 2002. I still find it hard to believe that so many folks still use scanners to periodically rip the guts out of their sys...usually using more than one scanner at a time. Then these same folk can't understand why their sys and wares don't function properly anymore. So sad.

Well at least it is free as it not worth money in my opinion.
Also it uninstalled cleanly on my notebook. Which is good as there is no way I would want to keep this garbage on my computer even if it is free.
