thanks for that; it sounds like a rather nasty deceptive piece of work, or am I wrong?

Well it is one of these things that doesnt delete easy. When you just try to delete it in Add/Remove and fix it in HJT. It can come back.

A entry in a HJT log. Mostly 02 04 20. Shows signs of the infection. With a great tool by one of the experts here sorts it out. You still have to fix it with HJT.

Not something I would like on my computer anyway...Blahh

I'm not sure why it got repeated.

SpyAxe is on Spyware Warriors Rogue list. Very Rogue

33,000 views and growing.

The trick here is that the Spyaxe people infect your computer and then tell you that you are. Then they offer you several of their pay programs to get you clean. :roll:

But, then again, this is why you have us.

Trained to sniff out these scumbags and send them packing.

I'm suprised the guy who registered the domain isn't getting hate mail for it yet. I mean, they exposed who the registrar for security2k.net (the site in the picture from the link) is, telephone number and all.
