How is SuperAntiSpyware at removal? I usually recommend Malwarebytes because it has never failed me when it tries to remove the junk it finds.

Coincidentally, my mom just emailed me in a panic. A bunch of pop-ups came up claiming "You are infected!" They look like MS warning boxes, with the shield and all. One of them even imitates your "My Computer" box, listing all of your drives, but with flashing red numbers next to everything showing the supposed infections in each. Typical rogueware scam. It tries to send you to antivirusonlinescan.com to get your system cleaned... for a price, I am sure.

Nothing on Google about it, so it may be a new one. (Searched for the name and the exe it wanted her to open... "Antivirus-fc289c-2006-71.exe")

She didn't open the exe, and emailed me about it before she clicked on anything! I'm so proud of her! All of those times I told her what to do in these cases... and she did it!

Parents... some times they listen to you, even when you think they won't!

Superantispyware is a great product. When i was cleaning my system, i ran malwarebytes and i thought it removed everything. After that, when i ran superantispyware, it detected more 12-15 harmful items. So i guess a combination of mbam and SAS is recommended.
However, don't trust Windows Defender if your pc is heavily infected.

Hope this answers your question.

Yes, indeed. I recommend BOTH MBAM and SAS (SuperANTISpyWare)
Please see this link, I cant even ACESS antivirusonlinescan.com.
COMODO SecureDNS FTW!

Yep, it did. Thanks!

Edit: Sorry it took so long to reply. I didn't get an email notification until 10 minutes ago. For some reason, my thread subscription email notifications sometimes default back to "daily" from "instant". Is this a Seven Forums bug, or is it on my end?

I recommend only one and using an online virus scan every once-in-awhile.

Anti-spyware programs are not the same as Anti-virus programs, for those who don't know the difference
Yup I also do the same, I use MSE Only and once a Month I use Kaspersky Online Scanner to check my System.

Any Good Online Scanners that you may recomend ?
