    I have managed to get infected by a win32 problem. Somehow or other I downloaded a program that told me I have a win32 virus. MacAffee was not picking it up.

    I did an internet search of win32 type spyware. Selected a site call spyware doctor which offered to delete the offending items and like an ARRSE down loaded it's program. Now I can't delete it either.

    I've tried add/remove from the control panel, I've tried using MacAffee shredder, I've tried going through the thing item by item, but it keeps reinstalling its self.

    Any ideas?

  4. Go to www.filehippo.com and choose from any of the free anti-spyware programs.

    I've got AVG and Ad-Aware myself.
