Spyware Protect 2009 is fake security software that's goal is to make you purchase the program in order to remove the "infections" it detects. These Spyware Protect 2009 fake error messages can be in the system bar, browser, popup. Don't buy Spyware Protect 2009! Remove Spyware Protect 2009! This infection is often the result of Downad.KK/Conficker.C

Hello - My bosses system got this only today. I had the hard drive taken to be fixed. Had I been able to see this, maybe we'd be saving some frustration, time and $.

The biggest problem that I had was that this bug can and WILL hijack your browser, as it did ours. Unfortunately, my boss(s) only like to use IE - they have only very basic computer literacy, so they don't always know not to click on deceptive pop-ups. As soon as it comes back in the morning, FF is going on and I am deletely IE shortcuts (they wont know where to look.)

Good to know for the future, thanks for posting!!!

*sigh

This does not work. The Spyware Protect 2009 disabled my Adaware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. I can not even remove and re-install these software. They just DO NOT run. at the same time, I have this www.windowsclick.com problem.

I have tried A-Squired and Vipre. They did not work! Found the virus and Malware, but can not effectively remove them. My McAfee did not work either! The computer is having the same problem after re-boot.

I'm running on XP.

Please help!!!!!!

Please read the Malware and Spyware Cleaning guide and follow the steps there. If it doesn't work, post your logs in the malware removal and spyware removal forum. One of the trained staff members will be along to help you. I won't be, I'm still training.
EDIT: Is this allowed if I'm in GeekU? or would this be considered helping someone?

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

You can remove spywares and malwares by using different tools but no tool can remove 100% spywares .

Hm... Safe Mode? It got me thinking:
I was wondering if it would be a good or a really bad idea to open Safe Mode with Network Support and update MBAM there. Perhaps download/update some other software removing tools as well. Is SUPERAntiSpyware any good? What about Spyware Terminator and Ad-Aware? Will it make an "initial" scan to get things moving a little bit...
A lot of sites and people don't recommend to do scans in Safe Mode; I was just wondering why.

PS I also heard that sometimes we should rename the setup files in order to fool the viruses? Is it a ridiculous advice?

Yes that would be a bad idea because you are running online completely unprotected. We do not recommend that at all

SAS is good, Spyware Terminator I am not a fan as it was once a rogue, and Ad-Aware is getting out-dated.


MBAM doesn't need to be run in safe mode as its better in normal mode. Some scans though are better in safe mode.


PS I also heard that sometimes we should rename the setup files in order to fool the viruses? Is it a ridiculous advice?

Nope we do this in the Malware Removal forum. You need to against some rootkits to get programs to run
