Just got a computer in (XP) in bad shape. The first thing that stuck out at
me was "Spyware Cease". Owner claims it was recommended by Microsoft. It is
something they had to pay for. I can't find anything on the internet that
comes right out and says it's rogue, but Malwarebytes thinks it is and
removed it And it really is a suspicious sounding name.
The computer is still in a helluva mess. Among other things I get IE script
errors when I try to Restore the Active Desktop. So far I haven't gotten it
restored but this may be something else.
Anyone had experience with Spyware Cease?
