Malwarebytes removed Spyguard but...

Recommended Posts


Per the guidance on other posts on this forum, I was able to get the persistent Spywareguard 2008 removed from my laptop. I am still having some trouble though. For one thing, I cannot get Malwarebytes or Spybot to run using their normal installations and my browsers are still being redirected away from anti-malware sites...like this one. The only way I was able to get Malwarebytes to run was to install it under a different name and run it using a renamed executable from the run command box. I can't seem to figure out a way to do that for Spybot because it's executable isn't as easy to identify as Malwarebytes. I can install Spybot 1.6.0 okay but when I try to run it, I get an hourglass mouse pointer and the program doesn't show up...but the process is running in task manager. If you have any further guidance on how I should proceed, it would be greatly appreciated. Things are much better, but I'm not out of the woods yet.
