As with lots of the posters here I've been struck down with Xads and its delightful choice of personalised ads straight to my desktop.

I've also tried the normal spyware removers without much relief.

I've just used Hijack This and would love it if someone could point out the offending items for removal.

If anyone knows the home address, fax #, home phone number of the people who created this delight I would appreciate returning just a little of the fun they have given me to them personally.

Anyway here is my results from Hijack this.....
