hello, i hope this forum will help me help a friend with his problem, a spyware problem

I am not a computer genius not pretend to be. I am 51 years old and everything I know is self taught. I was probably writing fortan before some of you were born. Does anyone even remember fortan, good old MNF4, the grand daddy of them all.

Once I get established, I will post my problem in teh appropriate place. For now, it concerns what I think I have identified as boran.g, boran.a, other boran, and a mysteriuos file called alvsn.dll located in a folder under programs called vision. The basic problem is that nothing will delete these. Once deleted, they just re-appear, literally, the registy, the files, teh whole can of soup.

I have been to other forums with this problem, AVG, lavasoft, MSN and others, and no one has yet offered up a viable solution. I hope once one is found it will be useful to others in teh future.

Thanks for letting me post. I hope to hear from some of you and we can get aquainted

Hi awsmitty,welcome to TSF, do you see at the very top of this page where it says "Having problems with spyware and pop-ups? First Steps" click on it, I think that is where you should start.

Good luck!

They will get rid of those "nasties" too, and if they can't, then I personally think that nobody will! :grin:
