View Full Version : Please help- malicious crap installed on my computer!

When I open IE, all kinds of pop-ups keep coming up and it makes getting on the net impossible. I usually use Firefox anyway, but I want to get this shit off of my computer. I tried Spybot; it removes stuff, but it doesn't fix the problem and when I run it again there is more spyware back anyway. What do I do now?

Also try running Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/); it and Spybot complement each other.
This could possibly be CoolWebSearch. Download and run CWShredder (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html) and see if that finds anything.
If these don't work, download and run Hijackthis (http://tomcoyote.com/hjt/). Save the log and then post it in the forums at Spyareinfo (http://www.spywareinfo.com). Someone will go over the problem and give you a solution.
