    My computer was infected with spyware. I downloaded Microsoft Antispyware
    and 26 items were removed. The computer seems to be running ok. However,
    there is a big black rectangular box on my desktop that says, in red
    lettering, SPYWARE INFECTION. I can't remove this notice. Any suggestions?

    Two part reply..

    Perform Part 1 then perform Part 2.

    If the first two parts don't work, perform the alternate utility.

    It is suggested that you execute each tool in Normal Mode then in Safe Mode.

    If you are using any version of Sun Java that is prior to JRE Version 5.0,
    then you are strongly urged to remove any/all versions that are prior to JRE
    Version 5.0. There are vulnerabilities in them and they are actively being exploited.
    It is possible that is how you got infected with malware.

    Therefore, it is highly suggested that if there are any prior versions of Sun Java
    to Version 5 on the PC that they be removed and Sun Java JRE Version 5.0 Update 6
    be installed ASAP.

    Part 2
    -----------

    Download SmitFraud.exe from the URL --
    http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/SmitFraud.exe

    Execute; SmitFraud.exe { Note: You must accept the default of C:\McAfee }
    Choose; Unzip
    Choose; Close

    NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
    FireWall to enable WGET.EXE to download the needed McAfee related files.

    Execute; c:\mcafee\clean.bat
    { or Double-click on 'Clean Link' in c:\mcafee }

    A final report in HTML format called C:\mcafee\ScanReport.HTML will be generated. At the
    end of the scan, it will be displayed in your browser (Opera, FireFox or Internet Explorer).
    It is suggested that you move the report out of c:\mcafee before performing another scan.

    ALTERNATE:

    Secured2K's SpyAxe, PSGuard, Smitfraud, Sinnaka and Alemod removal tool.
