Spy Bot doesn't clean Virus Infections

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to My computer has a virus.

It is a Malware Scanner & Cleaner not a Virus Removal Tool.

You can run Malware Bytes in place of Spy Bot but you need to install update it then turn off the System Restore and boot the computer into Safe Mode to scan properly.

If you do not have a current AV Product installed you can use AVG Free

Which like Malware Bytes needs to be Installed Updated and then run in Safe Mode to be the most effective that it can be.

You can also try GMER a Root Kit Reveler available here
