i tried the "tiny url", and yes it finds the virus and more apparently, but if you want it to remove the virus you have to pay for it, anyway i have tried to remove much and forgot to shut off system restore, i have the flu and i am so tired of trying to get rid of this stupid moment........urrggggg, are there any other ideas..........please.

Try again

by CaptBilly1Eye In reply to spycrush

sorry to hear you're not feeling well.
Hopefully you'll be better soon and be able to put this problem behind you.

Here's what to do when you're ready...

Go back to this URL:
http://tinyurl.com/2ga7hu
and carefully follow the instructions for Manual Removal. There are just below the link to download the trial version of their SpyWare Doctor.

Then download and use the free tools that I gave you links for previously.

Once it is cleaned up, use the recommended tools to hopefully avoid this situation in the future (refer to previous post)

To avoid SpyCrush in particular, set your firewall to block this domain - SPYCRUSH.COM (195.225.177.53). If you don't have a firewall set up (i.e. ZoneAlarm, Norton, McAfee, etc.), then get one as soon as possible.

Let me know if this helps or if you need help with the instructions.


It is greatly appreciated if you tag useful responses as 'Helpful' by opening that post and clicking the 'Mark Helpful' button at the bottom. That way, people with a similar situation in the future will be able to quickly see what ultimately helped. Thanks.
