We’ve again been seeing a rash of new spyware programs that are “knocking out” the customer’s internet connection on the computer.  Once this happens, not only can you not get out onto the internet to look for a solution, your spyware scanning programs, such as SpyBot, MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware, will not be able to get the latest update to “kill” the rogue program.

Make sure you keep your Spyware Utilities up to date.  Performing updates should be done once per week.  If you do not know how to update your Spyware Fighting Programs, please look at our tipsheets on our website for step by step instructions.
