Subject: [THIN] Free Spyware/Adware/Worm Cleanup Kit Available
fromthin.net!


Hello Everyone,
After seeing on Mcafee.com  that the virus infections in the United =
States have reached=20
over 1000 machines per 1,000,000 people throught the US,  I thought I =
would put this package together to try and help the novice users out =
there.  This latest round of worms has reached epic proportions and my =
email box and phone have not stopped ringing from people asking for help =
to get their PC's fixed!
=20
I have been using some of these products for several years to clean up =
PC's that are infected or not working properly and I think they are the =
most reliable FREE utilities available.=20
=20
Download the file at:
=20
http://thin.net/cleanup.zip
=20
=20
ALL DISCLAIMERS APPLY FOUND AT http://thin.net/copyright.cfm! I take no =
responsibility for anything that you do to your PC or any damage that =
could be caused by use of this information or utilities. I did not write =
any of these utilities NOR do I provide support for them.  USE THEM AT =
YOUR OWN RISK!
=20
This is a 25 megabyte zip file (I suggest you should have at least a DSL =
connection to download this.) You will need Winzip or another unzip =
program to extract the files.  I may make CD's available in the future =
for a nominal fee(probably about $5 or so just to cover cost and =
shipping) if I get enough requests.
=20
These are the latest versions as of 5/5/2004
Files:
-Adaware6.exe  This is Lavasoft Adaware free for personal use.
Run the executable and it will install the program.
Once in the program click on the globe in the upper right corner to do =
the
web update. Obviously you need to be connected to the internet to do =
this.
Click on the connect button to get the latest pattern updates. Choose OK =
to=20
download the pattern file then click on finish when it is done.
Next click on the scan now button on the right pane of the program to =
scan your
system.  Follow the directions to clean your system after the scan is =
done.
You should update and run Adaware at least once per month.
=20
-SpybotSd12.exe  This is Spybot Search and Destroy free for personal =
use.
Run the executable and choose your language. I have included the latest =
pattern
files in case you cannot go to the update page and connect to the =
internet
Run the Spybotsd_includes.exe file and the spybot_tools.exe after the =
program installed.
Once the program is installed and you run it click on the immunize =
button to
keep your computer from getting more spyware on it again.
You should update and run Spybot at least once a month.
If you have the Sasser worm there are 2 removal tools here. One from AVG
that also removes the Netsky and Bagle worms and the one from Microsoft
The AVG one I called baglenetskysasservcleaner.exe the one from =
Microsoft
is called the MSSassremovalforXP&W2K.exe
See http://www.microsoft.com/security for the latest information.=20
=20
Every PC SHOULD have a Firewall. There are many out there to choose from =
but I prefer and use SYgate Personal Firewall.  Windows XP has a built =
in firewall that is enabled by default and is semidecent and should =
protect you from the sasser worm if it is enabled.=20
I prefer Sygate because I have a lot more control and the graphical user =
interface and logs let me see what is going on.  It is worth purchasing =
the full version and is the best
$39.95 you can spend on your computer.
The file name to install the free version of Sygate is =
SygatepersonalFirewall.exe.
=20
Finally I have included the AVG Free for personal use Antivirus Program.
You wil have to get a KEY from AVG for it when you register but it is a
great program if you can't afford one.=20
It is avg665fu_free.exe with the latest virus signatures of =
u7avi280e4.bin
that can be installed.  Otherwise I recommend that you go to your local=20
computer store and pick up Mcafee Antivirus version 8. You MUST have an
antivirus program and you must keep it updated.=20
