    Please can anyone help. My computer is running really really slow. I have norton security for my virus protection and it doesnt normally find anything. I also have ad-aware and also spybot search & destory. I have recently run spybot through and it keeps finding spyware daily. I click to fix them yet when I do it again they seem to be there again.

    here are the ones it has found so far,

    Avenue A,INC
    Double Click
    Fast Click
    Hitbox
    Malware Alarm
    Media Plex
    Statcounter
    Tradedoubler
    Clickbank

    I am not really an expert on computers, I know a little. I understand that these are cookies but I am not sure if they are really doing any damage.

    PLEASE HELP GET RID OF THEM ONCE AND FOR ALL

    My computer is only a year old and it has megga amount of speed and memory (well I think so) and yet it runs so slow
    Thanks

    ===========================

    DownLoad EasyCleaner http://www.majorgeeks.com/download414.html

    Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons – I do not recommend
    using the Duplicates files button
    as many dupes are there on purpose.

    Not all files will delete – that is normal.

    In the unnecessary button I check the top 4 entries



    See if that helps and if not we'll look at the hijack log
