Other than format and reinstall?
I'' try to determine it from hijackthis.
Client of mine has something on his machine, that during the install of Microsoft's Anti Spyware, Adaware, and Spybot, closes the installation down on me!
How can you defeat these guys!
I know previous versions of adaware and spybot were on the machine, but just RUNNING them gets them closed down.
I tried closing all open apps i could, but no use. Networking Safe mode, i can install/run/update adaware and spybot and delete a few 'spies', but microsofts version can't be installed during safe mode.
I've seen them hijack ie like crazy, but this is the first time i've seen spyware that senses everything you do to get rid of it.
AVG doesn't pick up anything.
I know for a fact he has something on there...Trying all weekend to remember it..Online trend micro scan says it detects ...Keep thinking mugly_i but know that is a bit wrong. Positive it ends in _i
Other online virus scanners drew blanks.
So, the question: Any idea how to get microsofts anti spyware program on in safe mode?
