I don't think any anti virus would help in this connection, just scan with 
your computer with some anti spyware programme such as, pest petrol or you 
can go for stinger. but don't forget to turn your system restore off before 
using stinger.

Subject: [AI] Regarding removal of spywares and other viruses


As I described to you two days back, my PC seem to have around 68
spyware programmes, which after careful examination of the scan report,
I have come to understand as the ones downloaded while I was using
streaming audio. Now, a couple of questions:

1. Can't they be removed through the regular anti-virus programmes
like Norton or AVG? If so, should we need to buy these or is the free
download stuff is enough to remove the spyware?
2. Can any of you send me the exact link from where one can
download free anti-virus programmes that can not only help us identify
these threats, but help us delete them as well?

Kindly help me with your expert suggestions.
