I hope I have this posted in the right spot. My problem is I have at least 2 maybe 3 different spyware that I can't get rid of, and it causes problems for me. one of them is called Win32.Downloader.gen (SearchProtect), the other is called iCrossRider and both shows up on my scans and when I go to delete them they keep coming back. I have even went on google and did the how to remove manualy method. Went to the places down in the registery and every time I delete the files out they come back...and the last 3rd one I think I have isn't showing up in my scans but it shows up in my start up programs which I have it disabled of course but its showing there and its called WebCake Desktop.
I have tried everything to get rid of these nasty little critters but they refuse to go away. The only thing left to do is a full reinstall of windows 8 and i don't want to have to resort to that if I don't have to.
Any ideas on how to get rid of these nasty critters?
oh and by the way, I use the default program on win8 (window defender) and the free version of malware bites. was thinking up upgrading the malware bits to full version but if the free version cant get rid of them i didn't want to pay the full price if it's not going to work
