    Default How do I get rid of this spyware

    I run SAS which then re-boots my machine. If I then run it again straight away, it finds more spyware. I assume it's not deleting it.

    Here is the SAS log, please advise if you need the others (MBAM didn't find anything but never does)

    FYI
    This subject has been the debate of many newsgroups and online forums. Cookies are simply text files stored on your hard drive and cannot themselves harm your computer in any way. Typically cookies are used to remember logins and keep track of user settings on web-sites.
    SUPERAntiSpyware will detect tracking cookies as "Adware.Tracking Cookies" and you can choose to remove them or leave them on your system. You may turn off this feature in the Preferences -> Scanning Control tab of SUPERAntiSpyware should you not wish cookies to be scanned, detected and removed.

    • Check the setting above in SUPERAntiSpyware to make sure it's set for deletion.
    • Make sure you're using the most current version of SUPERAntiSpyware.
    • Blocking 3ed Party cookies with-in the browser is a good way to prevent some of these from installing in the first place.


    Clearing cookies Manually

    Firefox users: Select "Tools," then "Options," then "Privacy," and then "Settings." Within the settings, verify that at least the cache and cookies boxes are checked. Click "OK" and then "Clear Now."

    Internet Explorer users: Select "Tools" and then "Delete Browsing History." This brings up a window that allows you to manually delete each section of the browsing history as desired. At the minimum, click "Delete Files" and "Delete Cookies."
