Specs: WinXP, 1.80GHz
I have virus protection on my computer that was working fine until recently I got this virus called XP ANTISPYWARE. It keeps popping up telling me my computer is infected (obviously a trick in order to get me to pay for something). Does anyone know of a way to get rid of it? I found sites saying that Spyware Doctor removes it but it only gives you a free scan then you have to pay for it. I'm sure there's a free way to remove it I just don't know how. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx!

I have A Gateway desktop...I don't know the model
Windows XP Pro
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.80GHz
512 MB

My computer was working fine for a good while until this virus arrived. Thanx again!

TheDay, maybe (?) possible you've got some sort of nasty (virus, worm/trojan, etc.)? Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
Dunno which would be best, but sounds like either can do the job.
