hello peeps. im a newbie here.

im not really into pc software stuff....but i badly needed help!

lately, there had been (spyware) windows popping up every minute i open a link. i tried downloading free trial scan of NOADWARE that it was too late when i read that it was a F&*$##$G SCAM. Fooled everyone. Its a good thing though, i haven't register.

So the problem is, after the trial scan, it had detected that my pc are infected with stuff like unconsented [bleep] calls (which i dont do links) that they have been spying every transactions i do on my pc....blah blah blah.

So, my question is, should i believe what NOADWARE has detected? Do i download all software on this link: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html


please help me.

Hi ellyjam and welcome to Geeks to Go.

I believe NoAdware is a scam. Supposedly they are cleaning their act up but I would not trust them at all. ;)

Note on NoAdware:  NoAdware was listed on this page because of concerns with false positives and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising (1, 2, 3) including exploitation of the name "ad-aware" (1). Earlier versions of NoAdware were also the same underlying application as Adware Hitman, Consumer Identity, Protect Your Identity, SpyBan, SpywareAssassin, Spyware C.O.P., SpywareKilla, The Adware Hunter, & TheSpywareKiller. Over the past few months, NoAdware has taken aggressive steps to reign in its affiliates (who were primarily responsible for the unsavory advertising) and released a new version of NoAdware (version 3.0) that addresses our concerns with false positves. Given these changes we can no longer regard NoAdware as "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.


To avoid scams like that use the software we recommend here or consult this web site, Rogue Anti-spyware programs

as to

Do i download all software on this link: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html

ive logged on again today, and as of this moment there were no more unwanted pop ups appear (since i remove the noadware scan yesterday) Do i still need to do some cleaning? Can you recommend a RELIABLE software that just scan if there are existing spyware or adware on my pc?

thanks a bunch for your help. ;)
