hi my name is holly, and i'm having major pc issues. i am very anal about spyware on my pc. recently, i have been flying high with not a drop on it, no pop ups, no redirecting, no finds in adaware, spybot, no viruses found. until a week ago when i stupidly tried to download a free AIM icon. i got SLAMMED with some of the worst spyware out there, vitural bouncer, bargin buddy, coolwebsearch, addestroyer, you name it, i had it. it was so bad it crashed my pc and stopped internet surfing all together. after much time i removed most of the main programs, deleted registry keys and had adaware from 600 objects down to 10. surfing came back up, but hindered. many popups and redirecting. ie wont function at all. i have some strange things found by my adaware and khuugi (whatever the hell that is) keeps putting itself into the startup. i know there is still stuff installed on my pc and its driving me bonkers, mostly because no search engine or securtiy site even brings up results on it! adaware keeps finding khuugi.exe, coolwebsearch and vx2. i can't get rid of it. i am desperate and finally came here to find some help. i know i will have to create logs, so if anyone can help a desperate girl, i'll be more than happy to follow the directions without question.
