Hi i recently got a piece of spyware called SpySHeriff. The program installed on my PC claiming to be a spyware fix program (i did not allow the install) i could not remove the program for a while but after looking through help topics on the net i found a registry to delete and fix the problem. Another thing that happened was that my wallapaper changed to this message :


SYSTEM STOPPED
system has been stopped due to serius malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected.
It is recommended you use a spyware removal tool to prevent data loss. Do not use the computer until all spyware has been removed.


This message seems to be another piece of spyware which i cannot remove. I am using AVG virus protect, Adaware latest version and windows anti-spyware to try and remove it but none are sucessful.
Can someone suggest how to fix this
?

I use spybot search and destroy as a primary tool, and the microsoft spyware tool as a secodary tool. I also use a firewall just to block all the little nasties submiting my credit card details and also check for virsus in JUST the windows directory. My machine is running 95% free of spyware. Have a go at Spybot and micro spyware, as ive never heard of this spysherif. When you run these two babies, you wont have any problems. Just give us a shout if you want some links. tata
