Hey! If you do a "System Restore" it should do the trick to get rid of this thing. Type in a Search for System Restore first. When that comes up, it will ask for a restart point to start the restoration. Whenever you think you were infected with this piece of crap, go back to that restart point first and then start the restore. Dont touch your computer until it reboots itself! If its still on your computer, then start back to an earlier restart point and go through the process again. Good Luck! Someone needs to find these buttwipes and break their fingers badly enough so they cant ever type again!

The Spyware Doctor download is a joke in itself. Whatever it does find it wont remove without buying their software.

Run Task Manager and end tasks of the security everytime it pops up, you can connect to the internet

best way is to put it on a memory stick on another computer then put it on your current laptop.
