HELP! Antispywaredeluxe infected!
If anyone could help me, it would be great.

I use firefox as my primary browser. I use a home edition windows xp computer.
One day while surfing stupid antispywaredeluxe (asd) opens up and starts scanning, etc... you know the drill.
Well, now every day it does this... closes my browser and pops up with its stupid little annoying &*#%@* fecking interfering pop up.

I cant find any of the files that some sites say to look for. I cant seem to get rid of this fecking thing. I even went to the site itself and wrote a nice long nasty letter to them telling them that their scam was not, under any circumstances, would cause me to download and pay for their piece of shit program... etc etc.
Not that it will do me any good, but I dont know how to get rid of this thing. Everywhere I have looked... "download our program to scan for the 'bad' program, and pay us to rid your computer of it"
I am just so sick of this bloody thing. Frustrated and tired of trying to find a way to get rid of it.

So can anyone help me? Please????

Well.. I dont know if anyone could have helped me with this or not. But the problem seems to be remedied.
I did a full scan and fix with online Trend Micro.
Since... I have not had an issue. So if anyone has a similar problem (spyware, malware, etc) give that a try.

Just a bit more guidance...
Unfailing; TREND MICRO-SYSTEMS "Sysclean" FREE!

Have you tried Trend MicroSystem's Sysclean...can be run in windows, within a DOS window, or in safe mode with DOS window. Also download the latest >>>pattern file for Sysclean to use. Setup c:\sysclean, into which you will insert a copy of the anti-virus pattern.

Run the pattern by opening the folder

1. Trend Micro Damage Cleanup Engine / Template
2. Trend Micro Pattern Files

Your engine is the DOS looking icon "" I'd put a shortcut on my desktop for emergencies.

The Virus pattern file protects customers against viruses.
The Virus cleanup template automatically removes the virus from the customer's system.

* Virus Pattern File (Controlled Pattern Release) - 5.208.02

When you have an inkling that you have been invaded by a virus, close all programs as best you an, then startup sysclean...

A DOS window will open, follow the instructions. You will note hundreds of codes installing...ignore that...The whole process may take an hour or so, so be ready for it.

I run sysclean once a month for good measure.
