Being into software and web development has its own advantages and disadvantages. Like its easier to hook up with girls since they often mess their PC and don't know how to get out, which means you get free invites to their place :). At same time, you often have to download things that might be potentially dangerous and often harm your computer.
Last time I was hit, it took me a few days to get out of it. It was not a virus, but rather an innoccous adware, well that is what it looked like. Started with just giving me a pop-up window if I used Internet explorer. Remember that I user Opera so Internet Explorer is not a big deal for me. But it soon spread like a virus, and before I could realize my system was taken over. I was no longer the administrator and all the system process users were showing blank names.
If you don't understand what I am talking about but can feel that you are going through it then I recommend XoftSpy.
Anyhow, I won't go into technical details here. Rather I will present the Xoftspy review and what it can do for you. Find and remove infected files immediately whether they reside in running processes, files, folders, or registry entries. It scans almost everything.
One of the things I liked the most is XoftSpy has one of the largest spyware databases of any spyware removal tool and includes automatic feature updates for protection against new spyware and adware. Once Xoft Spy find the infection, it labels it for you and indicates its threat level. Delete all the threats, or only specific ones.
The software was able to clearly get rid of all the issues. Few noticeable things were
1) The system was noticeably faster
2) There was no adware or spyware problem thereafter.
3) It was available for immediate download which was a big plus.
4) There were no side effects. Yes, there are adware and spyware that manipulate your system to their advantage.
The only drawback. Not too many options for the user. There is a scheduler available though but I am sure advanced user like me (IMHO), will definitely prefer more options like selecting the files to remove.
If I am asked to rate it on a scale 1 to 10. I will give XoftSpy a rating of 9/10.
