Re: Spyware Virus in my T61 laptop

Formating would be my suggestion as well. Since the days of the IBM t40, there used to be an Access IBM button, and if you selected restore factory settings, it would do a clean install with everything ready for you to customize. The access IBM button has been renamed to ThinkVantage, so try pressing that at the boot screen, and find the restore to factory settings option. Make sure to backup important files though!
