Got this dreaded unwanted download and now need to get rid of it totally but must admit I am lost. AVG found it but can't remove it. The instructions I have read on doxdesk are beyond me. I am using WIN98SE and need a step by step innstruction please.

Ad aware is no good with this one and it is a bugger to get rid of to a non techie.

Its a good idea to use adaware and spybot after you have closed all running apps. Press Ctrl, Alt & Del and end tak on everything except explorer. Make sure spybot and adaware are running the latest updates and try again. You may find that the progs are removed from your pc. Also try the same with AGV. They can't always remove a prog if its still running.

You can clear it out of the registry if Win98SE works the same as XP. You can try for nothing, go to Start/Run & type regedit make sure My Computer is highlighted click Edit then click Find, Type the exact name of the file you want to get rid of (EG Internet optimizer.exe) click Find Next. It should come up with your file & be highlighted. Delete that & ONLY THAT then click find next, & so on until it finds no more. Make a backup of your registry before you start in case of any mistakes, don't mess with anything else.

You can search for the downloader file that way as well. If you think you have downloder.dyfuca do the same exercise.
