Spyware 'Advanced Cleaner'

Cannot seem to get rid of this at all. AVG doesn't recognize it, Spybot/Ada-ware can't get rid of it anywhere.


It does all of this:
Displays ads
Records personal data / keystrokes
Hijacks internet browser
Allows remote influence
Downloads unsolicited files
Disables programs / system
Makes unauthorized phone calls
Exploits a security flaw
Floods internet connection
Distributes threats
Tracks browsing activity with installed applications
Tracks browsing activity with cookies
Installs without user consent
Inadequate uninstall procedures
Insufficient privacy disclosure and consent
Uses excessive system resources
Makes fraudulent claims about spyware detection and removal
Performs Silent Updates

I googled it and found a program to get rid of it but it was XP only so I have no idea how to get rid of it. Thanks in advance if anyone can find a way to get rid of it

I think this is what my brother's comp had a while ago. I don't remember for sure but I think running ewido in safe mode took care of it. Don't remember for sure though, so it might have been something else, and that may not be the program I used.

It won't even let me install Office 2007

Anyway I'll try what you said, if I can work it out

Edit: Cant get into safe mode even after pressing f8 several times

If you download AVG Anti-Spyware that can run in full mode for 30 days. That should remove any infection and hopefully not allow it back. AVG AS is based on Ewido.

Read the first post.

I have Tried Spyblaster, Adaware, Safe Mode full scan with anti avg spyware, Trojan Remover, AVG itself. All have removed adware/spyware but source (Advanced cleaner..) still is on my PC and everytime I think it's gone away.. a random IE window comes up with advanced cleaner stuff. And I don't even use IE, I use Mozilla but it appears on both.

Ah, sorry. I thought the whole thing was called "spyware advanced cleaner". I was wondering whether it was a worm or a virus, or something else entirely. So in other words, it's a one nasty piece of spyware I take it.

Shame you can't get a name of the malware, this might not work but its worth a go incase McAfee have it on their bad thing list. Download stinger

http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

Boot to safe mode but when the window pops up asking you to click ok to carry on in safe mode. Do no click it. Instead move it out of the way. Press Ctrl Shift Esc to bring Windows Task Manger and then run stinger from File, Run, also run the other programs from here too. Some malware bypasses safemode oO and it shouldn't load if you don't okay the safe mode warning screen.
