    No that's part of my problem. AOL Spyware just says it's there, the date it caught it, that it's adware and a nuisance (NO KIDDING). I've searched, I've looked, I've ran every catcher known to man.........

    Boy, i just love AOL :mad: :mad:

    Lets run this and see if it finds anything other than cookies

    Please perform an online scan with a-squared Web Malware Scanner

    [Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component]

    1. Click "Scan Your PC".

    2. You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Insall ActiveX component.

    3. A new window will appearing asking "Do you want to install this software?""

    4. Select "Install" to download the ActiveX controls.

    5. Click the blue "Scan" botton on the right to begin.

    6. Click on the Quarantine Tab

    7. Go ahead and close all programs and Reboot your Computer.



    Note: If you cannot use IE to run your online scan and have Firefox, then install the IE Tab add-on extension which should allow you to perform the scan through Firefox. After install, close & restart Firefox. Then right click on the page (tab) you want to use in IE tab. This allows you to switch rendering engine.



    If you go to View > Toolbars > make sure Bookmark Toolbar is checked. Then click "Customize" and look for the little IE logo. Click on that icon and drag it to your bookmark toolbar. This makes it much easier to use.

    4. Enter your State/Province
    5. Enter your e-mail address and click send
    6. Select either Home User or Company
    7. Click the big Scan Now button
    8. If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
    9. It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
    10. When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
    11. When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.

    • There are three scanning options available. Choose "Perform Complete Scan" and click "Next".
    • When done, a Scan Summary will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
    • Place a checkmark next to items you wish to remove/quarantine and Click "Next".
