Spy/Ad/Malware is a very re-occuring topic here. Instead of spreading all the links, advice and knowledge across multiple threads, let's create a compendium of helpful resources here.
Please do not create posts like "i agree" "i second this" etc here, they will be deleted. this thread should become a list of ressources and step by step instructions at which we can point people when they have problems.
what we could use here:
- urls to anti spy/malware software
- how to recognize whether you have been "infected"
- precautions to avoid infection
- what to do when you are infected (step by step)
- common malware remove instructions
and NO "get a mac posts" (also no "get linux posts" if somebody wants to describe how to troubleshoot problems using a LIVE CD that would be OK though)
