I have been tasked with the cleaning of my boss's computer... the normal tech guy swears by the effectiveness of Norton (bah), and was running
Internet Explorer 7, so that should tell you a little about the computer.
I've installed and ran a-square and AVG, and cleaned up most of the computer's issues. I also got rid of IE 7, and replaced it with Firefox... but
one problem remains.
This was hijacking the old browser, moving the user to securebowl.com, installed a taskbar icon, and every minute or so, issues a spyware warning,
instructing you to download the spyware program.
It's a worm.
I did a brief google check to find a cleaner, but hadn't found any free advice (darn sites wanna charge for info). My boss couldn't have been the
only dunce around, so if anyone has a link or something that could be useful, I'd appreciate it. As I am at work right now, I don't have time to do
much follow ups on searching for a cure...
