Thread: Sneaky Ass Spyware

  1. #1
    I don't have the slightest clue where I got it but I have some nasty spyware that I can't get rid of. When I opened IE, my home page was changed, my 'Favorites' was flooded with with bullsh!t, and this was below the address bar. Some strange search bar called 'HeartMapiBurn':

    I've done the following to attempt removing this annoying trash:


    Add/Remove - Nothing of the sort was listed.

    Start> Search> 'HeartMapiBurn' - Search turns up nothing.

    Ad-Aware - Search turns up nothing.

    SpyBot S&D - Search turns up nothing.

    Googled 'HeartMapiBurn' - Search turns up nothing.

    Any suggestions?
    Thx ahead for any help.

    ran both spyware programs after updating each of them. As far as that site you linked, I can't think of anything I installed recently. I did however update Messenger Plus. Think that's it? Odd that it would have been in the upgate though huh, if that was it?

    Oh great ! Quote : And, last but not least, FREE!
    Messenger Plus! is a freeware. You are even encouraged to send it to your friends! Of course, it does not contain any type of spyware or trojan. The optional sponsor program can be installed during the setup, risk free! For those who want to support the development but prefer not to install the sponsor program, you are encouraged to visit the online Messenger Plus! store, or give the developer a minute of your time by sending a postcard.




    I would just try deleting and reinstalling ....................... With out the sponser program.

    With friends like that, who needs enemies.

    Unistalled, restarted. Problem solved.

    Gonna reinstall as you said without the 'sponsor'. "Sponsor"? Is that what they're calling it these days??
