TechChatter: Spyware Nasties

I helped a friend yesterday with his computer. I'm sad to say that 3 of the last 4 people I've helped with their computers, the main problem was spyware. Adaware and Spybot got rid of most of them. Bhodemon showed me one they missed. It was a pretty nasty one. Unluckily I didn't take very good notes, so I don't remember all the details. The main detail was a directory in program files called bashshim. To read more about what happened, see my entry on TechChatter: Spyware Nasties.
