    Well it showed 48 'New components' so i cleared those. There were 2 it couldn't clear, i'll keep an eye on those. I use 'Download Accelerato' which has adverts so i guess i won't be able to use that again but i'll find another downloader.

    Be sure to reboot after running Ad-Aware. Especially after removing running nasties like WebHancer and the like this is very important.

    Good luck,
