    I always have new spyware everytime I do an adware search through my files.


    Anyone know how I can get rid of them for good?

    Do you have spywareguard and spywareblaster?they will help a lot in stopping most of the baddies from installing.

    You'll pick up tracking cookies virtually anywhere on the web during your surfing ...

    I've had some success by adding these applications:

    http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html
    SpywareBlaster v2.6.1
    SpywareGuard v2.2

    These will prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection.
