    Default Help needed with first time removal

    Hi, yesterday I downloaded the latest SpyBot and I ran the scans for my computer, I was just wondering as this is my first time using SpyBot. Is it safe to remove the Funweb virus it found on my computer with the Fix? Or will this delete important stuff on my computer? Not had my computer for long and I'm a bit nervous about doing anything, any advice would be appreciated. Thankyou

    Hello,

    Depends on what exactly is found about FunWeb.
    We have it in our detections as spybot.
    There is also FunWeb stuff in relation to Smiley Central.
    Although none of these products claim to be spyware, they do slow your computer down.
    All of the products use cookies to track usage, although they claim not to use cookies or anything else to track personally identifiable information.
    That being said, I would still recommend uninstalling the SmileyCentral software and other Fun Web Products if you feel your computer runs better without them.
    They are found by many spyware removal tools such as Spybot Search and Destroy, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, although they are deemed spyware safe by Aluria Software who created a Spyware SAFE Certification.

    So i would recommend to delete it from your pc.

    Best regards
