Hi d1nfante

In windows addremove programs uninstall SpyBot then Restart the PC,
and delete SpyBots folder in program files,
usualy > C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy
Then download and install 1.4 once thats done, check for updates, then check for problems, fix everything found, always reboot if SpyBots needs to, to finish the cleanup.
Download found here

Hi LonnyRJones,

I would like to check something with you. I was reading TonyKleins "How did i get infected in the first place" through the link you provided and theres this section "Open IE and go to Internet Options > Security > Internet, then press "Default Level", then OK.

* Now press "Custom Level."

Im using Mozilla Firefox as my default browser and from what i read before when installed Firefox. Mozilla Firefox does not use Activex in their system unlike IE. Is there there any tips and tricks that you could share with me regarding Mozilla Firefox?

Im not familur enough with mozila to advise, one thing is not to install an activex plugin and keep it up to date, :)

Lonny and d1nfante,

I hope you don't mind my piping in and please comment if you feel I'm incorrect or going too far off base with this.

One of the greatest fallacies I've heard is that a different browser will add protection. In truth, it's exactly the opposite, since you now have two browser's vulnerabilities and maintenance to deal with.

Though Firefox is recognized as an excellent browser and has a good record for quickly patching any vulnerabilities that are discovered, you must still keep it up to date as Lonny already mentioned. In fact, Firefox 1.5 has just released and includes a much improved update facility from what I've heard. Considering I don't use this browser, it's more important that you've heard it, which if you haven't should be something you begin to keep track of. If you don't want this added burden, don't use a second browser.

It's also important to realize that the Internet Explorer browser is still installed and operational, so it can still be exploited if it's not fully patched. Since Firefox doesn't directly use most parts of IE itself like some other browsers (AOL, MSN and others), these can only be exploited if they can be accessed when you aren't using the IE browser (yes, this can happen) or if you are using IE because Firefox doesn't display a site properly, such as with ActiveX. This is why it's still of utmost importance to keep IE patched and configured correctly as well as the Windows OS itself.

Remember that Firefox isn't really doing anything special, it just doesn't contain ActiveX and some other 'features' that IE has that inherently add to it's risk profile, since these are all additional 'doorways' into the PC that might be found to be exploitable. The larger the number of such 'features' the higher the probability exploits will be found.

For help with Firefox itself, I'd start with the official Mozilla Firefox site(s):

I'm no Firefox expert myself, but these are often mentioned and will undoubtedly have additional resources included within their pages.

Again, this comes from my general observations, not direct experience, so I'd be happy to hear comments if either of you have any. I have, however, seen what happens to the AOL Browser when the IE beneath it is infected and it's not pretty.
