    Download and install Superantispyware
    Load Superantispyware and click the "check for updates" button.
    Once the update is finished, close SuperAntispyware again, we'll perform the scan later in safe mode

    * Start Superantispyware.
    Click the "scan your computer" button.
    Check "Perform Complete Scan" and then next.
    Superantispyware will now scan your computer and when its finished it will list all the infections it has found.
