When I have run Spybot for the past few months it has detected SpywareSheriff.FakeAlert but has been unable to remove it. I have manually removed all the files that I can find associated with SpywareSheriff and, although Spybot still detects it, it does not seem to be causing a problem.
The last few times I have run Spybot & asked it to fix SpywareSheriff I get an error message 'Cannot create file C:\WINDOWS\wininit.ini. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process' I have tried turning off everything except the essential windows processes but still get this message.
Does anyone know how to overcome this
