Sometimes, despite our best efforts, it seems impossible to remove the spyware and other malware from our computers. Despite their efficacy, there are just some times that the traditional and proven malware killers will not be able to neutralize the malware on our computers. While some of the so-called “experts” simply give up and reformat the hard drive, resulting in the loss of any programs and files on the computer (unless properly backed up), this is not an appropriate step in trying to restore the computer.
