If you are using windows, which I assume you must be, I used to use Microsoft Anti Spyware, it was a beta at the time, I don't know if it is still or what, but it was pretty good.

Ad-Aware. Full system scan. Full scan with your anti-virus. If you don't have one, check www.avast.com

Go through your Add/Remove Programs, remove what shouldnt be there.

Internet Explorer: Tools menu > Internet Options > Delete cookies, files, clear history, etc.
Restore the security settings back to default.

Click Start > Run. Type "msconfig" . Services tab: Check "hide all Microsoft Services", then click on "disable all". Click on the Startup tab: click on "disable all".
Click Apply. Click close. Restart computer (click ok and just close the Sytem Configuration utility when it comes up), and do a full system scan with Ad-Aware again.

yup, i second ad-aware.

but if you still have problems i would low level format with a killdisk and then reformat. your computer will love you for it.

Two words that NEVER belong together- "Microsoft" and "Security".

Actually Windows would be fairly secure if Mr. Bill & his buds hadn't got a bug up their ass about Netscape and decided to imbed Internet Exploder into the OS..... :roll:
