    This article is no help at all. Even though I have Spyware Doctor and all of the other recommended spywares installed and run them weekly, now that this is in my system I *can’t* run them to get rid of the system. You people obviously didn’t think your answer through.

      Read the guide carefully, spearcarrier. Use code to fake-register xp anti-spyware, reboot into safe mode with networking and try launching tools from there.

    I got suckered into to this hackware…they have since siphoned $79.95 out of my credit account as I foolishly took the bait. The are registered as “Albinosdefender. com Baku” under transaction description…Is there any recourse to get my money back that anyone knows of?

    Since the transaction there doesn’t seem to be any sign of them or their icons on my computer anymore.

    I found that by entering in the registration code given above & then running the scan, all that is happening is you are stopping the pop ups from coming up AND the program is no longer recognizing itself as a problem.

    You are still, however, UNABLE to open any other anti-malware programs (at least not malware bytes) even after you have “cleaned” your computer. You still have an icon on the lower right corner (notification area) that looks a little like a 4 color shield.

    If anybody knows of a way to COMPLETELY remove this w/o a full system reinstall, please post it.

    Where do the people live that started this? I want to find them and hurt them. I’m sick and tired of all these viruses. I’m going to hack into a Drone carring a Hellfire missile and send them a message. Understand?

    spyware doctor won’t do anything either.

    it requires you to purchase the full version before it will remove anything.

      BigRed: SD displays exact and correct path to malware files and registry entries. If you do not want to get full version, delete the files manually. Alternatively, use other malware removal tools

    Xp anti-spyware doesn’t let me go on the Internet everytime I click on it it says firefox alert visiting this site may pose a security threat to your system and I can’t go on I’m on my ipod right now

    All you need is to open command prompt. In command prompt, go to directory where you have the malware/spyware program and launch it. You can also stop xp antimalware in task manager (yyo.exe)

      Marie : Try contacting your bank, not the scammers directly. IF it was credit card, you have a chance to recover money.

    I, too, was scammed into this. I contacted my credit card company. They set aside that amount as in dispute (I don’t have to pay or pay any finance/interest charges). They assure me it will be removed in 1-2 billing cycles.

    Can someone explain how to delete the files manually?

    @Marie
    On any credit card transaction you have up to 6 months to dispute it. Explain it was an internet scam and you will get your money back.

    I got this fraken thing twice in a month! The first time, it got into my system so bad I couldn’t access any of my files. My IT department replaced my laptop. Now with a new laptop, I’ve been revisted by the damned thing again! I was able to get the free spybot downloaded to my computer this time, ran the scan, and I was able to get the thing off of my computer.

    My ‘non work’ sites are limited to email and Pandora. I have never had a problem like this with my home computer and do much more surfing there… any idea why I’ve gotten it twice on my work computers?

      Sari:
      It might be an infected advertisement, or a trojan downloader that is still active on your PC . I would recommend using something with better real time protection than Spybot’s. Whatever you choose to do, rescan with other anti-malware applications as well.

    I too got hit by this Malware, and someone posted on how to get rid of it and it worked !!! You reboot your computer into safe mode after turning on by continually pressing F8, then working in safe mode, you want to choose a restore point from System Restore, before your computer was Infected…..don’t try and do anything else while your computer is restoring itself and do not interrupt the process! It may take a little longer than usual, but let the computer do it’s job and when it’s through, it will reboot in normal mode. And that’s it!!!! I was so happy to be rid of those popup warnings!!! I wish I knew who it was on here that wrote what I read on how to get rid of it, because I would like to personally thank him or her, I just can’t find it!!!!
