My computer was infected with this spyware.Ispynow files this morning at 10:00 am and has this pop up from my security center saying that I have a harmfull program. It gives me the options of unblock, keep block, or enable protection. It only gives me the enable protection, but that takes me to the microsoft spyware protection and wants me to pay for the removal of the spyware. I have been at this all day and was wondering if you guys might be able to help me? Please guide me through this for I'm not a computer guy.

Hello, ranger, start with this:
==Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
from: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.html
or: http://www.besttechie.net/tools/mbam-setup.exe
=Dclick that file, mbam-setup.exe, to install the application,
-ensure that it is set to update and start, else start it via the icon.
Select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan; the application will guide you through the remaining steps.
ENSURE that EVERYTHING found has a CHECKMARK against it, then click Remove Selected.
If malware has been found [and removed] MBAM will automatically produce a log for you... do not click the Save Logfile button.
When it completes examine the log: if some files are listed as Delete on Reboot then restart your machine before continuing.
Post the Notepad log [it is also saved under Logs tab in MBAM].
Then:
==download hijackthis: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download5554.html
-copy it to a new FOLDER placed either alongside your program files or on your desktop and then... rename hijackthis.exe to imabunny.exe
-in that folder start HijackThis by dclicking the .exe; now close ALL other applications and any open windows including the explorer window containing HijackThis.
-click the Scan and Save a Logfile button. Post the log here.
Post those logs and we'll go from there.

Okay, now we are getting somewhere. ISpyNow uses files it places under Documents & Settings, in various folders. And it rewrites them if they are damaged.
Start hijackthis, select Scan Only, place checkmarks against all the entries listed below that still exist, and then press Fix Checked.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [nah_Shell] C:\Documents and Settings\c\nah_jpde.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [HPseti] "C:\Documents and Settings\c\Application Data\Google\runhh6110411.exe"

Delete:
C:\Documents and Settings\c\nah_jpde.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\c\Application Data\Google\runhh6110411.exe

Then search D & S for files with these names , they will have similar file modification times:
learn32.dll
rehh
vigrs
Ina
comm3
fsh1
mscscc.dll
run611041
..and delete them also. Restart, and see if they have stayed deleted. Post back with a list of files that you found and deleted, please. You might order the files in each folder by Modification Time, and note any other files with the same time.

Thanks for the help the spyware is removed and I now don't have any spyware. Thank you so much for ur guide on how to fix this problem :D

Okay, ranger.. did you not have the rootkit, TDSS? It would have complicated the solution..., but not all cases of ISpyNow involve it. It would show here if present:
Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices.
-expand “Non-plug and Play Drivers” and click the plus icon to open those drivers.
-search for TDSSServ
-right click on it, and select Disable [do not Uninstall!!]
But if deleting files worked, you don't have it.
Cheers.
