Aurora Spyware

With only two more weeks for the start of the Fall 2005 semester, I think it’s appropriate to prepare for battle with the new onslaught of spyware infected computers. In general, I typically tackle spyware using a host of programs such as Microsoft Antispyware, Spybot, Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware, Webroot’s Spysweeper and depending on the type of infection HijackThis. However, in recent times I’ve been having a much harder time dealing with a program called Aurora. It’s pervasive annoying nature and lack of a good removal tool have made this my prediction for worst spyware of the coming semester.
