    Default Alexa Related

    Hello well im new here so sry if this is the wrong forum. Well I recently just got the trojan or w/e Alexa Related and I ran Spybot S&D to remove it and it said it was removed. I then rebooted my comuter because a file:
    NewsUpdate: Program directory (Directory, fixing failed)
    C:\Program Files\Creative\News\

    could not be fixed. When I ran spybot again ( I was not in room when it finished), i got a bunch of errors and one said that i did not have enough memory to continue so i rebooted and ran it again and the same thing happened. It also said in the log that:
    Alexa Related: Link (Replace file, fixed)
    C:\WINDOWS\Web\RELATED.HTM

    but when i go to google i get transfered to sum related site. I then reran spybot to make sure it was completely gone and it said it was gone but i still get the related page problem. Can someone help me plz thx

    Hello,

    Which version of Spybot do you run?
    Do you have installed the updates?

    Best regards
