Today someone asked me if I could remove Spy-Shredder, as it becomes challenge for him to remove it completely. He said that he dumped AVG Anti Spyware free version on the system and find SpyShredder, and removed it. Although after every restart it reappears again n again.
Spy-Shredder, is the successor to the rogue anti-spyware program called SpySheriff. SpyShredder get installed on your computer without your permission through the use of some Trojans program and other malware. Once installed, the Trojans will display message boxes on your screen stating the following:
NOTICE: If your computer has been running slower than normal, it may be infected with Viruses, Adware or Spyware. Spy-Shredder will perform a quick and completely FREE scan of your system for malicious programs.
Here I’m posting a quick n successful guide to remove it manually.
1. First Open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del/Esc)
2. Now Go to the processes tab, and end the following three processes (if its thr)
3. Unregister the following files one by one. (By clicking start -> Run -> and typing regsvr32 /u ***)
where i have typed ***, replace with the following file names (do 1 at a time)
4. Go to My computer and browse to C:\Program Files. Look for a folder named SpyShredder. Delete this folder (when you delete the folder hold the Shift key on your keyboard to perminantly delete it)
5. Restart the PC.
