  1. I have used two cleaners (cleaner & spybot) to remove this thing…search entire hard drive, gone through six pages of all the registry tricks found on line and this thing comes right back after it appears to be gone.

  2. I would not recommend or use Spybot myself. Many will disagree, but it is updated so slowly that you have bad chances with new viruses and have to go through registry manually to (partially) remove other parasites.

  3. Im so mad. I got this virus (VirusTrigger)on my computer. I’ve tried everything to get rid of it. Nothing works. Any suggestions?
