    Could someone please help me. I know very little about fixing computers...but recently found tons of things on my machine (spy ware stuff) I down loaded ad-aware and ran it. Restarted and then ran it again. I can't get rid of some things. I have looked at my start up programs, control panel and got rid of the things I know to be bad. Then I down loaded spybot and ran it. I am having a hard time with it. It is not running right so I can not delete the items it found. What should I do now? Thank you in advance!!

    You're in the wrong forum, you should be Security; you'll get much better answers there. But what you need to do is make sure you have updated Adaware and Spybot before running. When you open each program you should see an Update button - this will download all the latest updates for the programs. After scanning with those you can post a Hijackthis Log: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html Don't fix anything in the log, just save it and post it here.

    You should also do an online virus scan either at www.trend.com or www.symantec.com to make sure you don't have a virus.
