My computer was jumped by Brave Sentry spyware

  Last night, I’m minding my own business when – ALL OF A SUDDEN – my computer gets jumped by spyware. I click on a webpage and suddenly my computer reboots. No error messages. No warning. BAM!

  Once it reboots, I start getting warnings about how I am infected and how I can click on XP-like pop-up warnings appear. My computer gets all sluggish, taking a minute or so to refresh screens, and my Internet connection is even slower. I find out TASK MANAGER has been disabled by the Administrator. HEY WAIT?!?! I AM the administrator. Things look bad.

   I find out I can get into the registry, but can’t disable what just got installed. I can’t kill the processes. None of my spyware removers work. My anti-virus was also disabled.

   Luckily, I have another computer with untainted access to the Internet to find a fix. I find this website . I download a removal program on my infected computer, boot into SAFE MODE, and run it. About 10 minutes later, my computer has been cleaned off.

  1. which spyware did you use? you mentioned that
    your spyware removal programs didn’t work.

  2. I only use Spybot Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware & Arovax AntiSpyware. I installed, updated and ran all three. It looked like it worked, even after rebooting – it ran another scan. It did not work.

    This came back 10 minutes later.

    The workstation hard drive will need to be reformatted and have the operating system reinstalled.

    I am VERY careful of what I trust and use to remove spyware. Here is a link for more info on the subject.
