Hi Robert, Below are the instructions for Spybot so you can have a go at this for a start: Firstly you may need to update your Spybot program, so try the following instructions: 1. When you open up Spybot just down arrow to "Search for Updates" and press the Enter key. 2. You will be presented with a list of updates which will need to be checked before downloading them. 3. It may say" 6 updates are required to be downloaded so just down arrow pressing the spacebar on each one until you have the six updates selected.4. Then press the Alt key and right arrow over until you hear "Actions" and then down arrow until you land on "download updates" and just enter on this.Wait for a while and you may hear the percentage of the download and when it is 100% you have completed the download of the required updates. Now do thefollowing instructions to scan your system and find out how to get rid of your findings:1. Press the Alt key and F and then down arrow to "Check for Problems" andenter.2. Now spybot will start scanning your PC and this process may take anythingfrom minutes to maybe half an hour or more so don't get impatient with it. 3. When the scanning is finished you can determine this is the case by for instance "pressing the left alt key" once and if it says "file menu" then you will know the scanning part of the process is completed. Now just repress the "left alt key" to come down off the menu bar as the purpose for going up there was just to determine if scanning was finished.4. Now we are ready to kill off any problems found so we need to press keys"left alt plus letter F" to begin the cleaning process. Okay you may say here but this is the keystroke for opening up the filemenu, well normally you are correct but in this case and within spybot thiskeystroke combination activates the cleaning process of spybot. 5. After you press the key combination of left alt plus F, you will be presented with a choice of " delete x amount of selected objects?" "yes or No". You must tab key to the yes button and press the spacebar on it. You willthen get a final notice message telling you that you are about to delete "xamount of selected objects" "are you sure?, ok button or cancel!." You should of course choose the "ok button" by hitting with the spacebar and spybot will begin the final part of the cleaning process by removing all located spy ware from the list its found. 6. Use keys "left alt plus F4" to close the program back to the desktop. Hope you could follow this Robert and if not just drop a mail to the list and I will reply.

Hi Paul and co I'm wondering could somebody give me the steps on how to use spybot and Add-aware please Many thanks, Robbie ----- Original Message ----- From: "Lists" <lists@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <vip_students@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sunday, March 11, 2007 12:56 PM Subject: [vip_students] Computer related: Diary reminders!Hi All, I thought I would give you some items for your diaries. This is in relation to keeping your computer spyware and virus clean. Perform the following tasks and please make a note of when you last did these procedurers and a note of when you should do them again. I recommend at least once every fortnight. 1. Use "Ad-Aware" to check for spyware. 2. Use "Spybot" to check for spyware, note that you really need to use both these programs as some spyware may not be picked up by one or other of the two programs mentioned. 3. Do a manual virus check of your PC. These steps apply to everyone. Any questions about using the above mentioned software just write to us here on the list.
