To start off, you should never click on any
links that seem suspicious or has a “.exe” after it’s link. Better yet,
don’t click on anything that hasn’t been verified as safe. Never, EVER,
go to any websites stated in-game by those frauds; it's either been
infected with spywares or have been keylogged.
Some key terms that you may find after scanning your computer:
Malware: modifies system settings, and can perform undesirable tasks on your system.
Hiijacker: redirects your browser to web sites.
Dialer: dials a service, most likely porn sites, for which you are billed!.
Trojan Horse: is attached to a program, and performs undesirable tasks on your system.
Collectware: collects information about you and your surfing habits.
There are free programs that help you against spy ware (s). Some that I personally use are the following:
With the ability to scan your RAM, Registry, hard drives, and external
storage devices for known data-mining, advertising, and tracking
components, Ad-Aware SE easily can clean your system, allowing you to
maintain a higher degree of privacy while you surf the Web.
Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition boasts a number of improvements. Extended
memory scanning now scans all modules loaded by a process. Scanning
uses the all- new CSI (Code Sequence Identification) technology to
identify new and unknown variants of known targets. Extended Registry
scanning now scans Registry branches of multiple-user accounts and
performs additional smart checks to detect dynamically created
references. Scanning speed is noticeably faster, and this version
offers an Extended Scanning mode for known and unknown/possible browser
Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove a multitude of
adware files and modules from your computer. Spybot also can clean
program and Web-usage tracks from your system, which is especially
useful if you share your computer. Modules chosen for removal can be
sent directly to the included file shredder, ensuring complete
elimination from your system. For advanced users, it allows you to fix
Registry inconsistencies related to adware and to malicious program
installations. The handy online-update feature ensures that Spybot
always has the most current and complete listings of adware, dialers,
and other uninvited system residents.
And of course, one of my favorite free software:
AVG Free Edition is the well-known antivirus protection tool. AVG Free
is available free of charge to home users for the life of the product.
Rapid virus database updates are available for the lifetime of the
product, thereby providing the high level of detection capability that
millions of users around the world trust to protect their computers.
AVG Free is easy to use and will not slow your system down (low system
resource requirements). Highlights include automatic update
functionality, the AVG Resident Shield, which provides real-time
protection as files are opened and programs are run, free Virus
Database Updates for the lifetime of the product, and AVG Virus Vault
for safe handling of infected files.
Spyware Doctor is a spyware remover and provides real-time anti-spyware
protection against spyware, adware, Trojan horses, keyloggers, spyware
cookies, adbots, spybots, browser hijackers, phishing attacks and other
malware threats. Additionally it actively protects web browsing using
Internet Explorer with a built-in popup blocker and malicious site
guard. Spyware Doctor is easy to use and low on PC resources and its
scanning speed is delivered by multiple specialized scanners. Almost
any function of Spyware Doctor can be updated through the Live Update
process. The OnGuard feature is designed to provide real time
protection and deploys several tools that actively monitor and protect
the PC from spyware attacks.
Version 4 adds an Instant Messenger (IM) Guard Tool to the OnGuard
real-time protection. It also features a new ability to remove
challenging new threats designed to elude elimination. The new version
includes the option of creating a Windows System Restore point prior to
"Zone Alarm free firewall. Even if you accidently get a keylogger, it
monitors outgoing traffic (when they send keystrokes) so you are triple
Online scanners (free trials):
Of course, there are multiples upon multiples of other free programs, but these are the primary one (s) that I use and trust.
However, let’s assume you’ve accidentally clicked on a link that’s been
key logged/infected with spy ware and your current antivirus products
aren’t able to cleanse the infected area. What should you do?
If it’s gotten to a very serious situation, do a system restore. A
system restore is a handy program that’s located within any Windows XP
computer. It has the ability to restore your computer to previous
points, such as 1 day, 1 week, or even to restore the entire computer
as if it were new. However, be certain when you do use system restore,
you do not revert back to a previous day where there were also spy ware
on your computer, because it may or may not trigger the spy ware to
come up again.
In order to access your system restore:
Click Start button, then click on all programs, head to accessories,
then to system tools, and click on system restore. From then on, I
believe you can follow instructions as to how to restore your computer
to a previous point.
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
If you have any other questions regarding any complications or problems with your computer, feel free to ask.
If you have anything to add, then feel free to say it.
