    Spyware message from AVast

    I appear to be having problem with Avast in that it keeps informing me that my PC has spyware. l tried running Avast but the message keeps appearing.
    I have upgraded Avast to latest version but still problem is there. How can l prevent this message from keep appearing?

    Re: Spyware message from AVast

    Is it not possible that you do have spyware on your PC? And if so, are you simply wanting a method of over-riding that warning and allowing the spyware to remain there?

    Alternatively, if you want to know if the message is genuine and if you do have spyware on your PC, could you post a little more information regarding the message - e.g. exactly what it says?

    Also, is this by any chance the same computer you were talking about in <post:=599,492>post 599,492</post:> that had the Ranky-DR problem?

    I'm not sure that Avast will remove spyware as it is an antivirus program, not designed for spyware in all it's forms. First you need to tell us what, if any, anti-spyware / malware programs you are running and what the scans with them find.

    FWIW - I believe you have a problem with your computer, not with AVAST.
