Spyware Protect 2009

By El Superbeasto ·
I have a user who has contracted Spyware Protect 2009. Does anyone know if the virus is installed automatically by visiting I reimaged the laptop (Dell D620) twice and even gave her a new laptop. I am basically trying to figure out the origin of the virus. All i see out of the ordinary is two streaming radio stations. and Any help is appreciated.

you will have to rename the App.exe or the virus will prevent you from installing it.

After install, Reboot into safe mode and run Scan/cleaner (option 2).

Good Luck

I dont think there is any one way of getting this virus... or any other virus.
