I have Sophosinst through my college and I still hang on to a version of Spysweeper that hasn't been updated in about a year.
I've never had virus or similar problems on this computer, and I've had it for about a year and a half now. The main problem I've noticed is that I'm getting a lot of random and annoying popup ads, even after running sweeps on both programs. I assume they are connected to the Mal/HckPk-D.
Sophosinst recognizes the problem but is unable to remove. It says that the malware is connected to a temporary internet file, but when I go to the folder to manually search for the file, it isn't there.
as per advice from a friend of mine, I tried running my anti-spyware programs while in safe mode. It did me no good.
How can I remove Mal/HckPk-D?
Thanks in advance.
