Well this is what happens when you're up late at night and you cannot sleep. I figured I would start this as a way to give out some tips to anyone who comes across this page, or any of my friends who follow me on Facebook.
Lately, I've been having a few people with spyware trouble getting in touch with me via txt as well as email. It sometimes isn't easy to get rid of. It's frustrating, it's annoying, it makes you want to reach through the computer to strangle the neck of the asshole that decided it would be a good idea to make people's lives miserable. Removing this garbage isn't always straight forward. Registry entries and start-up/autorun programs have to be fooled around with, etc. However, two programs I've found really useful to help curb some of this are called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Microsoft Security Essentials.
More to follow, with a tutorial for you guys (undecided whether I make a video tutorial or not) when it's a more reasonable hour of the day. Any specific questions, just leave a comment and I'll try to answer them as best as I can.
