Anti-spyware advice

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Late last year when I tackled my aunt and uncle's nasty spyware problem on their Windows PC, I could have used Andrew Leahy's advice on what to do. Then again, reading through it, I probably would have come to the same "format and reinstall" conclusion I did in the end anyway, since I ran the same software he recommends without success.

However, after getting some proper anti-malware applications on their machine and installing Firefox, I seem to have prevented my aunt and uncle from getting any more spyware on their system so far. Yay.
