Using a healthy computer, download and burn a Kaspersky boot disk, and have your infected laptop boot from that to perform a scan.

spybot search and destory (free) Malwarebytes (free) Viper antivirus (Free.) I gotta hate on Kaspersky but I have had nothing but trouble with them on more than 5 computers....I gave up on them. Anyway, if you can't download an anti-virus/malware/spyware program to your computer then you may need to dl them to a clean PC. Then burn them to a data transport device. Load them up and attempt to scan, if it fails, then boot in safe mode and retry. If not, give me a pm and i'll help you fix it via the IT company I work at.

To clean I run Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D at least twice each. Then I run ESET Nod32 Anti-Virus in full system scan. Trust me, if they don't clean your computer directly then they will let you know exactly what the culprit malware is then you can google that and find step-by-step instructions on how to clean it manually.

Beyond cleaning, to keep my computer protected at all times I run SpywareGuard, Spyware Blaster, Spybot S&D Immunization, WinPatrol, and the ESET Nod32 AV agent. Then I also install a browser extension to block flash.

A full cleaning process will run you as much as 5-6 hours between all the scans. But I promise you that since I started installing all of these ongoing protection programs in the background I have not had to worry about a single infection again. Except for my friends and parents which actually accept installing a bunch of "cute" little toolbars and programs from the internet. Once you actually Install something on purpose then all protection goes to shit and whatever you installed might even be coded well-enough to disable your background protection apps.

P.S. The only software on my list that is not free is the ESET Nod32 AV (unless you can get it through torrents) but it is solid.

P.S.2. All of these background programs use up either very little or none of the system resources. Which is why I don't run the "Ad-Watch" feature in Ad-Aware, because it is a memory hog and resource intensive.

P.S.3. Before and after doing all of these processes I also recommend running CCleaner and cleaning out everything you can to make sure there are no nasty programs hiding out in your temp files. They like to do this so that if you delete them they will reinstall themselves easily.

+1 on Malwarebytes and Spybot...

For good measure run both from flash drive in safe mode with networking (so it can update malwarebytes and spybot to latest signatures)

One of the best I have seen has been SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

I only use this for running regular scans when I feel like it. Other than that the ONLY and I MEAN ONLY antivirus software I will EVER and I MEAN EVER use on a Windows machine will be

Eset Smart Home Security.

I did my own personal test to see which virus protection worked the best out of Panda Antivirus, AVG, McAfee, Norton, BitDefender, Kasperesky, and Avast

Bottom line it out performed all. I did this when I was in school. My professor told me to go find viruses and test each antivirus for the same sites, keygens, hacks.

So I went to all torrent sites, downloaded files from limewire, all types of X-Sites, opened all sorts of executables. Compared the catching and cleaning along with processing of each on a HP Laptop 320hd, 2.0ghz dual core, 3gb ram. And Eset smoked the competition.

It sits so quietly in the corner and takes literally no processing power but catches EVERYTHING and cleans on the site as well as detects the bad sites for viruses and closes the connection as soon as you click the link.

Take it from a regular dude...Eset Smart Home Security is the way to go.


Remember when sex was safe and motorcycles were dangerous?

This.

Never run on a admin account. If you're using vista and beyond, its a little harder for malware to just install.

XP is a bitch. It seems it doesn't matter if its an admin account or not.

If you have admin privileges to the laptop, then create a local user and use that one instead. Trust me. Will save you a LOT of headache.
