I have been through many of these sites and have followed the paths to remove savenow, but it does not seem to show.... :roll:

Has any one used removal programs for situations such as these, that they can recommend and know its safe to use. :?:

Well, the registry entries listed in at least the Symantec link should be all that exist. Find and delete those and that should be all it takes. If they don't exist, it's possible that Panda Quarantined the files, vs. deleting them, in which case, it will most likely still identify them as existing on your machine in future scans until you delete them (as it will most likely scan what's in quarantine). To my best understanding quarantine does not remove the files from your computer, but simply makes them inaccessible and inactive. Check your panda quarantine and delete all files there. If you find any of the registry entries listed in the Symantec link, delete them.

The Panda scan i use is the online free scan version that does not contain a quarantine feature but it still locates the savenow spy where which is no where to been seen :?

ps: u lot tried the new microsoft anti spyware, its online protect feature is rather good... :o

O.K :wink: Your problem doesn't sound very dificult.

Follow this easy instructions:

Go to start, Run, then type Msconfig press enter.

the system configuration utility will open, then click on the tab Startup.
There you will see all the programs the run, whenever you start you PC
Usually spyware starts whever you start your PC, that't why I Brought you here.

you will see a list of tasks, Uncheck the ones that you see suspicious, and the ones that you don't need and restart you PC.

Or you can go to

Go to start, Run, then type REGEDIT press enter

Find the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

there you will see all the applications that run onyour system startup, and you also have the path where each program is. So you can identify spyware and delete the key.

Be careful!! Windows registry is not to play!
make sure you don't change anything else but on that key.


thanks, :wink:


if you need more help, just let me know

Thanks for the help guys, i tried looking for it again but had no luck. I recently did another online scan but for some reason the ad where did not come up, making me think its an error on the panda scan side. Thanks again for the help. :)
