December 12, 2005Okay, I have never really had a problem with spyware until now. I run my scanning and removal tools after every time on the internet and they catch all problems and delete them...well except for this one file. Its a reall pain in the a**. Its called E2G and its located in the Program Files folder on my hard disk. It cant be deleted! I cant even do it manually, a window comes up and says it can't be deleted access dined. Any of you computer guys know how to get rid of this. Thanks in advance!
December 12, 2005I use a combination of AdAware and Microsoft Antispyware. MS AS, is realtime, so it catches most things before they can ever be installed on your comp, and AdAware catches things that MSAS sometimes misses.
December 12, 2005Adware is a nice program to run
December 13, 2005Ad-Aware on all my machines and have no problems with spyware
December 13, 2005I manage about 100+ computers and I run Ad-Aware on all of them. Go to www.lavasoftusa.com and download the newest build of Ad-Aware. Then get the dat file updates and do a scan. This should take care of the problem. Let me know, thanks.
December 13, 2005I have a program called Webroot Spy Sweeper. Much like the MS AS program, it too is real-time and blocks most programs from being installed on your computer. I have mine set to scan and inquire about ALL incoming programs including songs, email, and the like. It's available at Best Buy for not too much $$. That coupled with Symantec's Norton Internet Security program and I've never had any spyware or viruses since I've installed the programs.
Best Buy often has special discounts on these programs if you buy them together. I had the Geek Squad put mine in, as well as reinstall WindowsXP, after my computer crashed. Ever since then I've had ZERO problems with it.
December 16, 20051. Spybot Search and Destroy
2. Ad-Aware SE Personal
3. Tweaknow RegCleaner
5. Microsoft AntiSpyware
6. Spyware Doctor
I use all of these and never have ANY problems at all.
Anyone who wants a spyware blocker get SpywareBlaster to stop it before it even reaches you.
All of these are free and I highly recommend you get them.
All of them can be downloaded on www.download.com
December 17, 2005I use Ad-Aware and Microsofts program on my computer. I also installed these on my sisters computer since she has kids so they have a higher risk of getting spyware.
Just the other day I did a scan on their computer since I don't think they have gotten the hang of needing to do these things yet. Ad-Aware found a number of programs which I deleted once the scan was complete. I then ran Microsofts program. The same programs were found. In other words, Ad-Aware may have found them but when I told the program to delete the spyware, it didn't. Microsoft did. All the more reason to have a number of programs to keep your computer safe.
December 17, 2005yeah you cant rely on just one product these days, you have to use combinations to make sure your secure.
December 27, 2005Go to the following website for instructions on how to remove the spyware;
December 27, 2005All the program listed are great for cleaning spyware/adware off your system. But you really need to protect your system from being infected in the first place. I've switched to Zone Alarm Security Suite within the past 4 months and it's worked great keeping the system clean. Performs AV, firewall, privacy protection, spyware scanning, etc. Much leaner and faster than any of the bloated Symantec/Norton products too.
Pest Patrol is also a very good real-time scanner that I used on other PCs.
