I managed to somehow acquire Spy Falcon on my computer, and stupidly used it's uninstall facility which seemingly hasn't fully removed it. My internet homepage keeps getting reset to some spyware site, and i have a persistent message by my clock saying "Virus Alert!".
I have run adaware and spybot search&destroy, and they have both deleted a fair few files related to this, but the problem hasn't gone away. I have run hijackthis, and assesed the log file on a website I saw on another thread.
It tells me that I have two nasties in C:\WINDOWS\system32.
They are atmclk.exe and dcomcfg.exe.
However, if I try and delete either, the computer says they're in use.
Can anyone tell me how to delete them please, and also, will this get rid of the Virus alert and stop resetting my homepage, or do I have other problems as well??
Thanks in advance, and sorry if this is hard but I'm computer illiterate and only have 180 points as I spent them all when I messed up my home comp a few weeks ago!
P.S. an online virus scan also gives atmclk as adware too, and says that taskdir.exe is a hacktool
