All of these programs stick the virus & spyware into quarantine but are you supposed to delete them from there or what do you do with them?
Yesterday AVG found the virus & "healed" it. But today AVG found it again and again "healed" it. I uninstalled Advanced Spyware Remover (according to AVG, this was the source of the trojan horse) and also uninstalled WinPatrol (thanks but no thanks, Scotty).
I downloaded Spyware Doctor & it didn't find any viruses but it did find tracking cookies, some registry stuff. It wouldn't fix any of it on it's own because I need to BUY it before it'll actually FIX any of it, so I just fixed it on my own.
My question is, when these programs quarantine anything, do you delete the items from the quarantine or what are you supposed to do with them from that point?
I get automatic windows updates, have a firewall, but I'm wondering if I should download HiJack This, since it seems to be really popular?
I did try running the Trend Housecall scan. When it's complete, the browser window closes so I don't see the results of the scan. I don't know if this is due to the program itself or because my computer might still have problems.
