How to remove spyware from you system


My system survived a spyware attack recently. This seemed to be one the worst virus attacks I ever had. In case it manages to enter your machine, follow the below steps to get rid of it. 
  • Go to \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
  • There will be a folder named as some random number. Delete this folder.
  • There will be one more folder with some random name which combination of some alphabets and some numbers. In my case it was KG092392983. You will see an icon of the virus installed in this folder or its sub folders. Delete this folder as well.
  • If the system does not allow you to delete the files/folders, restart your system and immediately delete these. 

Enjoy working on your machine again! :D
