First, what is happening? Annoying popups, messages or? Most spyware comes as tracking cookies but there are more insidious. The worst ones are Malware that may allow or drop in backdoor trojans to interfer with your computer running properly.

Go to the Security Help Tools sticky to get Ad-Aware and SpyBot. These are among the best free anti spyware programs you can get. Be sure to update often.

Get "HijackThis" to scan you system and post a log here.

I updated my spybot and ad aware and ran them both. I think I got the annoying malware pop up off:eek: but my processes are still up at around 48. Can I end these processes manually or am I going to cause damage to my pc?:confused:
