    I’ve a worst nightmare with this shitty stuff. It all started when I downloaded this non-sense SpySweeper from Webroot.com to do a scan on my laptop, because it was terribly slow and I suspected there maybe some adwares/spywares.

    I don’t even know how this suckers exist in the market and project shamelessly that their’s is an award winning #1 anti-spywares. They should’ve been ashamed of themselves.

    This is my second worst expereicen with Webroot. First time was last year when I purchased this product and installed in my desktop and ever since it became the big headache. Instead of removing and “protecting my PC from” spywares, I doubt they insead seeded my desktop with more spywares. I guess all the similar folks do the same thing to scare the customers and make their way of living. YIKES, what kind of creatures are they ?

    Now, after downloading the freescan spysweeper from webroot.com and let it scan my laptop 3-4 days back, my laptop is now infected with this nasty SpyGuard 2008 virus. I couldn’t not do anything and I left my laptop switched off for the last 3 days.

    Whenever I boot my laptop, it comes from nowhere and starts scanning. I did EVERYTHING possible but nothing works.

    Here’s what I’ve done :

    — Disconnected my laptop from the network and booted it ;
    — Removed the spywareguard process from taskmanager ;
    — Deleted the entire installation directory ;
    — Deleted the entries from the registry ;

    After doing all this, it get’s installed from somewhere within my laptop and starts the processes and the scan.

    I don’t know where it hides within my laptop.

    This is my office laptop and they’ve the Semantec antivirus installed in it already. Scary thing is that, even this Semantec couldn’t detect and destroy this sucker.

    Now, without installing any other tool such as malware (I don’t want to escape the frying pan and end up with the fire), is there any manual way of wiping this creature for good ?

    Your help in this regard would be highly appreciated.
