    1. Click Start - Find/Search - Files And Folders, then bring up and delete everything under the following:

    *.TMP

    C:\TEMP\*.* (If a C:\TEMP folder exists)

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*

    2. Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab).

    Other then ScanRegistry, SystemTray, and your antivirus program, most of the others can be unchecked and disabled.

    Before you do that, write down everything in the left column next to the square boxes and post the list here. You might also want to read here.

    3. Download and install Ad-aware 6.0.181 and Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.2.0. Once you do that, run their update function, then run them so they can find and remove all spyware files and registry entries. You might also want to read here.

    (Note: It helps to mention what version of Windows you're using and how much RAM is installed)
