Well.. I'm back again with a question that a computer novice should know.. Actually not much of a question just more of advice... Anyways on to my problem! I just ran spyware doctor (and I haven't for ages) and it picked up a keylogger obviously I want to get rid of it asap but the trial version on spyware doctor won't let me get rid of it!:uhm: I'm wondering if its safe to delete it manually from my C:\Windows folder its called "isncfg.dat" I also managed to get the info page from spyware doctor HERE. I feel stupid by asking for advice.:(

Here's a link to as how to remove it: http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/grayware/ve_graywareDetails.asp?GNAME=SPYW%5FISPY%2EA

You might just want to reformat though, it might be a better idea. Remember, to use more scaners then just Spyware Doctor (if you aren't already).

oh... thanks for the link. I looked in my registry editor and I found out it isnt starting up when my computer gets rebooted. So its not really a threat anyways. I dont mind if it lingers in there i just dont want it to steal my passwords and stuff. I have a whole bunch of that spyware crap and stuff.. I guess its time to do a reformat. (I havent done one in almost 2 years I think lol) Thanks for your help!

Also, if you are running a good software firewall, you can control which programs are allowed to access the web. That way you can be pretty safe that sensitive data isn't sent from your comp.

They don't protect from human error though, so it's always a good idea to not just happily click and allow everything. Make sure, you know what the program is, and what it wants access to the internet for, don't just assume it's for updates or something.

Yes, knowledge of what you are doing is as with most computer related stuff also required.
