    Dear Forum,
    i have run WebRoots Spy ware sweeper and it found a list of spyware that MicroSofts Anti Spyware has not clean. :(
    can any suggest the best way to rid this programe from my PC.
    There is a remaoval tool from the Purity Scan web site it self, though can this be trusted ! ? :confused:
    http://www.purityscan.com/uninstall.html

    Or is there a manual approach.
    Has any body had this problem and Successfully got rid of it.

    Many thanks :)

    Never even heard of purity scan so I can't really say whether or not it can be trusted. However, why don't you try Ad-Aware or SpyBot.

    I use both and never come across anything that one or the other hasn't been able to shift.

    spyware doctor is another good one but it will cost you

    i would say go with the uninstall from the purity scan web site first then move onto the spyware removers after if needed

    Thanks guys.
    i have the Adaware & Spybot programs.
    Though this problem is on my work PC, which means i can not load on um authorised software. Even though it is free !
    of course i can load it, run it, then uninstall it.
    I have even told the IT Dept what is on the infected PC and they can not find it or remove it.
    I used the on line scan from Web Roots i think it was. I hope to display the offending programs in my next thread.
    Has any one used the Purity unistall program ! ?
    If so, did it work ?
    Many thanks guys
