I am trying to clean my daughter's friend's computer. I have already done the following:
1. Installed all Windows XP Updates (including SP2
2. Installed AVG Free
3. Installed and ran Adaware (including VXcleaner addon)
4. Installed and ran Spybot

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Hello and welcome..

  • Clean out temporary files:
  • Click Start -> Run and type in: cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Let it scan your system.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only ones checked.
  • Click "OK" to remove them.
  • Click "Yes" to confirm the deletion.

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware from HERE (if you already have Ad-Aware installed, make sure that it is the latest version 1.0.6 and always go online and update it before you run it).

If it's NOT the version 1.0.6, can you then uninstall your current version/delete folder: C:\Program Files\Lavasoft & empty recycle bin. Finally install the latest version.

Download Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner plug-in HERE
  • Install the VX2 Cleaner
  • Start Ad-Aware SE
  • Go to "Plug-ins"
  • Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click "Run Tool" (Before running the VX2 Cleaner, make sure other anti-virus or anti-spyware applications are closed.)
  • Click "OK" when asked if you want to execute this tool.
  • If your computer isn't infected, click "Close".
If your computer is infected;
  • Select "Clean"
  • Reboot your system.
  • Scan your computer with Ad-Aware:

    Set up the Configurations as follows:
    • Click the Gear wheel at the top of the Ad-Aware window
    • Click General > Safety & Settings: Check (Green) all three.
    • Click Tweak > Cleaning Engine > UNcheck "Always try to unload modules before deletion".
    3. Click on "Proceed"
    4. Click on "Scan Now"
    5. Deselect "Search for negligible risk entries" as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.
    6. Select "Search for low-risk threats"
    7. Run the scanner using the Full Scan (Perform full system scan) mode.
    8. When the scan has completed, select Next.
    9. In the Scanning Results window, select the "Scan Summary" tab.
    10. Check the box next to every "target family" for removal.
    11. Click "Next", Click "OK".

  • Reboot your computer again
  • Run a second scan (With Ad-aware & VX2 Cleaner) to make sure the files have been removed from your computer
