Hi guys,
Somehow i got some stupid kind of spyware that i cant get rid of. Ive used AVG virus scan, Ad-Aware, Spybot, and ewido maleware scans and i still get pop-ups that say "to get rid of such-and-such spyware, click here to download removal software". It will send me to a page wanting me to downlaod Pest trap. Ill get a screenshot of what the error looks like next time it happens. Please help me.

try HiJackThis , then analyze the logfile and delete what comes up as bad.

HAHAH dude you got a codec on your hands.. been watching porn? this happened to my friend..

alright, in your profram files will be a Folder named Soft Codec,, in there will be files that are like isasafhs.something.. there is one callede isa(orwhatever)unin
thats isaunin. Double click it. It will restart your computer immediatly.

then you run NOADWARE or XoftSpy and it will be called something like EmCodec... Just get rid of it and you got it.
hope this helps

note*
ANYTHING you are trying to watch online and it says "Error blah blah blah you need a codec, click here to download." dont.

your friend eh? why does your friend talk to you about his "special time" either you guys are weird and talk about how you rubbed one out to a certain flick or this "friend" is really you.

anyways, look for new programs that seem like they are suspicious and delete them right away.

Well, Captian Pooka, I dont have a folder named "Soft Codec" but i do have one named "Video Compression Codec" which i think is the bad codec.



Thats what the folder looks like, what do i do from there?
