Now, for those who I haven't told, my computer is, in short, flipping out. I only see two options right now.
Reformatting, which I'd prefer not to do.
And begging for knowledge and help online.
So. Is anyone here familiar with the Pest Trap or Spyware Quake programs? Specifically, how to kill them?
P.S. I forgot to mention this. Something just nuked my computer's sound, methinks. My speakers are no longer detected at all, and any headphones I plug in the front of the compy, USB or headphone jack, fail to be detected. I have. No. Sound. And I believe it to be related to the crap on this system.
My advice to you - I dealt with Spyware Quake a few months back. It fucked me royally, but I got rid of it eventually - there are a few different fixes online. Just search both of them on google and you should find a decent fix for it.
Just make sure to follow the instructions EXACTLY.
That should help you, and for fututr reference, Spybot Search and Destroy is a great spyware removal software.
