    Default spyware quake removal

    Hello,

    Does anyone know how to remove spyware quake from the system? I downloaded the latest updates and removed everything and immunized, but there is still an icon in the system tray that pops up and says

    "
    Your computer is infected!

    Critical System Error!
    System detected virus
    activities. They may cause
    critical system failure. Please,
    use intimalware software to
    clean and protect your system
    from parasite programs.
    Click here to get all available
    software.
    "

    Then when you click on it it takes you to: hxxp://www.spywarequake.com/?aff=240

    It asks you to buy this program.

    Any help in ridding my system of this pest would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    J

    Default Spyware quake removal. . .

    I too have this annoying problem (Spyware Quake and Virus Alert!); With the annoying message in the task bar.

    Is this a threat? Is there any way to get rid of it?

    Please advise.

    We need others to confirm this works for them

    shoman you and others posted in another member's malware topic, which can delay that member's receiving authorised help because of the post count implying assistance is already being given.

    I removed them, please start or stay with your own topics.

    Thank you.
