This is a conversation about SpySheriff, not a conversation bout wanting to be a spy.
Please help me. I have this stupid SpySheriff and it will not let me on the internet period. So I cannot use any of these great sounding "removal downloads". How do I get rid of it without downloading something? Is there something I could buy at a store? Thank you for any help.
I sucessfully removed spysheriff from my computer by system restore.
I was doing a casual search for spyware programs and was stunned to see all the warnings about spy sheriff.
I have been using Spy Sheriff for over a year and have to say that i have never had problems with the program (I thought) My system runs smoothly and Spy Sheriff has always kept spyware off my computer. NOW I AM WORIED! Reading others experiences and removal problems I decided to uninstall it, which I did very easily. It never effected my desktop settings nor my system restore. (I run WIN XP SP2 Zone Alarm, & Fixit Utilities. My Spysheriff program was downloaded from the Spy Sherriff website and is a fully working programme.
HELP.Am I being naieve? I thought I was reasonably experienced with computers but now I'm confused over the whole issue
Comments, thoughts anyone?
I can't even start up Windows XP normally!
I tried going to safe mode and made it and I deleted all the
SpySheriff files but I need to modify the registry
BTW I'm typing this on another computer
