Every now and then, I find my computer being taken over by web sites I haven't asked for - I then run CWshredder and it usually says a programme called Madfinder has been removed. What is Madfinder? I have ZoneAlarm and AVG anti virus on my computer - so how does it get in? how can I get rid of it forever?? Thanks

It gets in through an ActiveX control that is not secure I believe. Run Windows update and get ALL of the latest security patches. Is there a web site you frequent or use of Kazaa or something similar? Are you getting rid of the problem correctly? SOme of them you need to go into safe mode and manually delete the files.
