    Be careful when searching for tools to remove malware. This past weekend, I found the following malware masquerading as "anti-malware" tools...

    - Full-DiskFighter (particularly nasty and difficult to remove)
    - Spyware Doctor
    - Spyware Hunter 4

    DO NOT install this garbage. It will "detect" all kinds of non-existent stuff then CHARGE you to remove them!! Uninstalling these is very difficult, so you know they are adware, malware and worse... Good luck!
