After I'm done with this my computer still runs slow and the little winow keeps popping up. Can anyone tell me how to make the window stop poppingup and how I can make my computer much faster and clear it of almost all spyware. Is spyaxe also malicious because it keeps popping up on my scans. THANX.
using both together is effective enough, if you found out that you had a trojan on your hhd, you'll need to find out wich trojan you have, and search it out from a anti-virus site for the fix.
also is spyware malicious...yes, most spyware can cause your computer to freeze up/ restart for no reason/ and to cause programs to crash such as windows explorer / and your browser.
"So getting the spyware under control on your computer is a must"..
