Whee! Great, thank you so, so, so much! *offers homebaked cookies*

It seems just fine, like it was before. I was so annoyed at myself because I know how I got infected - had to download something for work, disabled ZoneAlarm and bam! And I try to be careful usually.

While I am here bugging you I guess just to ask - is ZoneAlarm/Kaspersky AVP/AdAware/Spybot/Spyware Doc enough? Is there anything else you would recommend? There are just so many threats to deal with...

And again, thank you so much :)

Glad to hear it!

*munches on a cookie*

Thanks!

Now that your computer is clean, its a good time to reset your System Restore point. This will ensure a clean backup to fall upon if you ever need it. To do this:
  • Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  • Click the System Restore tab.
  • Check the "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives"

Reboot your computer, follow the steps above, this time unchecking the "Turn off System Restore" and reboot.

I also recommend downloading and installing SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard, and IE-SPYAD as well. The programs are free and can be updated... so please do so. Installing these will go a long way in preventing reinfection.

Check out these links How'd I get Infected and Understanding Spyware as well, some good information for you.

Update Windows as well... grab SP2 now that your computer is clean. You can do that by Clicking the Tools menu header in IE and choosing Windows Updates.

With SP2, the Windows Firewall will be active by default... but Zone Alarm is better... so I suggest you disable the Windows Firewall once you have SP2 installed.

You can do that by clicking the Security Center link in your Control Panel. Then just turn off the Windows Firewall.

Other than that... remember to update Windows frequently, update your protection programs, scan often and Surf Safe!
