    Dear Wilders

    I have come accross this problem many times on many different machines, but cannot for the life of me locate and kill it. Ad-Aware doesn't pick it up either.

    Usually I format(NTFS) and install Win2kPro, drivers, Norton2003, Ad-Aware. As soon as I connect to the internet to update Windows and Norton I get this irritating message come up on the screen running as follows:

    Task Manager: Messenger Service
    Process: csrss.exe (a win2k system application - critical process)
    Title Bar: Messenger
    Message Box:
    Message from SPYWARE ADVISORY to USER on [date] [time]
    ---------------------------------------
    Your computer may be infected with unauthorized spyware programs.

    it then proceeds to tell you how to cure this by getting a pen and writing down this web-page: www.spw2.com and using their software to kill any spyware.



    How on earth do I get rid of this thingo_O?
    Please help.
    Thanks
    Martin
