Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alright, basically I have a machine that keeps getting infected with spyware. I figured that I was smart enough to not do anything to get infected, so I never bothered installing an antivirus program. Then I learned that, for some reason, watching this downloaded season of The Shield is bad times because I have spyware all over the place. Usually, Google is great with helping me get rid of whatever pops up. This time it's not nearly as much help.
Alright, first up is one of those "Oh No! You have Spyware! BUY THIS!" things that keep coming around. It's called Home Antivirus 2010. I've found two removal tools for it online, but I'm leary of them. It seems like something that would cause even more problems by using it. Maybe that's my personal bias/paranoia.
The second is something called ihaupd32.exe. The only two sites I've found talking about it say it's all doom and gloom and that I'll have to re-install my OS. That option is a pain, so I'm still looking for another solution.
