Spy Shredder

Recommended Posts

:x Anyone know how to get rid of Spy Shredder? It's the most insidious virus I've ever heard of. It invaded my computer and actually installed trojans, spyware, etc, etc (134 all together). It says to "fix" my machine, I have to buy the "Complete Spy Shredder" (about $50), and it will 'fix' things by removing the viruses it 'found'.


I downloded Norton 360, and thought it solved the problem, but the next day, the power went out, and when the computer came on, Spy Shredder was back. By now, it's so powerful it won't even let me start any other virus removal program (when I try, Spy Shredder keeps popping up, wanting me to buy their 'fix'). It won't even let me download any updates for Iobit, or any other anti-virus program.


If it weren't so terrible, I'd have to marvel at how it completely controls everything my computer does or won't do. It runs terribly slow-like about a minute after I click on something. (Spy Shredder hasn't totally crashed my computer, because it wants me to be able to access their site with my credit card).


What can I do (other than agreeing to pay Spy Shredder's extortion).:x

Hi 2manycats,


There seems to be a manual and/or an automatic solution in this page, but McAfee SiteAdvisor gives warning for spyware on it.


Feedback from some users indicated this site engaged in one or more negative or undesired activities


On the other hand, analysis by McAfee of the downloaded files from that page says:


10 green downloads

In our tests, we found downloads on this site were free of adware, spyware, and other potentially unwanted programs.



Do it on your own risk, but my opinion is that, it is worth trying. (My choice would be manual.)


After finishing, use the latest AWC.


I hope this helps.
