Need help in removing PestCapture

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just came home today from hunting to find that our home computer has been infected with "PestCapture" I was just reading up on it on some sites and it sounds pretty annoying. My parents tried to delete it but when I tried to get on IE it popped up with stuff saying your computer is infected and is at risk for spyware and other malicious programs etc... I was wondering if anyone has had this problem before or recently and if you could help me in finding and removing this junk.

Try AdAware first, then SpyBot

I used Ad-Aware, Webroot Spysweeper, CA Anti-Virus, CA Anti-Spy, Zone-Alarm And I think that did it.
