    I was surfing the net one day and I encountered a pop up ad that downloaded a program called AdDestroyer without my notice or permission. It installed itself onto my computer and now I can't get rid of it. I have been getting about 3 or 4 ads sporadically when I am not even visiting websites. I tried Add/Remove programs but it says it can't find "Install.log." I also scanned my PC for ads/spyware with AdAware and Spybot but they didn't detect it. How do I get rid of AdDestroyer?

    Unzip and scan. The scan button will turn into a save log button. Save it,copy and paste it back into this thread. Don't fix anything yet because most of it is needed.
