Lo and behold, it worked, because I got a mention in the August #233 edition.
Here is John's part:
Hi Ed !
I thought you might follow-up in your next newsletter in
reference to #2 in Issue 232. Sometimes the programs you have suggested may detect some of the adware, but often can't remove it. As a matter of fact, a coworker's daughter
had just that same issue on her computer as the person who you quoted. Even though she ran Spybot S&D and Adaware, it showed that everything was fixed, or it could not fix some items.
Rather than advising a novice user to try and remove things
through the Add/Remove in the Control Panel that may cause more problems than help, I would suggest that the person first go to the Forums at the TeMerc Internet Countermeasures site:
Tom (TeMerc), who runs the site and the volunteers who hom work with him, has helped literally tens of thousands of users safely remove those Adware and Spyware programs. If you read the posts of the people he has helped solve their Adware
and Spyware issues, you will see that the instructions are
easy to understand and are given in a step by step interaction
with the computer user that even the novice can grasp. You can also see, in the forums, that they do not give up until your
computer is completely clean.
The daughter of the coworker I mentioned was a novice user and had a ton of Adware and Spyware issues with the
pop-ups and disabled programs just as the person in your
TeMerc helped her rid her computer of all of that trash and also
suggested free software to keep her from getting infected again!
Before suggesting a novice user try and remove Adware of Spyware on their own, I would hope you would follow-up
and suggest instead they ask for help at the TeMerc site.
The site also informs you on the latest security updates. He
updates his site daily, so it is always current.
Best of all, the service is FREE! Tom does not ask for, nor does
he accept donations for his help. You can read on the home page of his site why he provides this free service.
Please consider a small follow-up in your next newsletter. It may help your readers. Thanks again for a great newsletter!
