Recently I have offered to fix two friends' computers that were jacked up from spyware. I tried spybot, ad aware, Microsofts anti spyware app, spwsweeper and XP's system restore. None of it worked. System Restore could not restore, Norton (with the latest defs) could not finish it's scan and the spyware apps did not do the job. At my wits end I decided to reinstall which of course worked out peechy. My question is....in the case where a user does not have a restore disc or the full blown version of Windows, what the frick do I do???? Any info is greatly appreciated.
