Hi, I've been tearing my hair out over this piece of malware, have thrown every kind of spyware remover i could think of at it, but still it comes back. It seems to be causing random browsers called Aurora, and it's stopped me from changing the desktop background. Any ideas as to permanent removal? Much obliged to ya......

Glad your problem has been solved:

To keep your computer safe
-Make sure you have all critical updates installed.
-To make sure that you have got a firewall running when your connected to the internet and Anti-virus software which has the latest updates.

Two great sites to check for good advice and top rated software are http://members.acces...ntomPhixer.html and http://www.spywareai...p?file=toprated
