    It does not work. I tried Scan Spyware and it removed it but upon re-boot the little 'sucker' comes back up. I think it is in two or three other locations to continue to re-install itself. The Microsoft Spyware Beta removes it (or so it seems) but upon the re-boot is back on.

    I got tired of cleaning spyware off my dad's computer every time I came to visit, so I switched him over a few months ago. ZERO problems since then.
