or does everyone else want to kill the people that create spyware? Had a client call me on Sunday... pretty serious spyware infection (presented itself as a trojan, disabled spyware, antivirus, and pop up blocker). The name of the one he has is SpyAxe, with a side order of Smithfraud C. Did a quick google search, found the tools necessary to remove the infection. Did that, and it would seem the smithfraud c remover I found was bad or something, because now, the computer won't boot fully into windows, but the screen saver still works. BartPE and XP recovery console doesn't recognize a windows drive. Now, I get to spend a few hours trying to save all their data, and reinstalling/activating windows. yea me!
