    Yeah, it's annoying just wondering if any other people were getting it.

    the tech place im at has a custom health cheek program which removes most crap - think its just norton part of it, most spyware and avs should clean it away

    i have seen this when you install limewire in the past. i work at circuit city (firedog) and i see a lot of virus'/spyware come through. but this one can be a pain the rear end to remove.

    we get many callouts & pc's in our shop for cleanups of this antivirus2008/2009 rubbish.

    best removal tool ive found is running combofix in safe mode

    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

    most antivirus/spyware apps wont protect against it with standard definitions, as numerous variants are released daily.. (something like nod32's heuristics may well detect even new ones)

    one customer we had actually registered for the spftware, which cost him £84, then £20 every 30mins was taken out of his account, until barclaycard put a block on his card.

    most anti virus utils can spot it, dont know how good they are at removing it but they seemed to remove it well enough
