    I think he meant getting rid of them was his problem

    Yes, I think we know what he meant.
    I am now assuming (apologies if I'm wrong ) that Tedob 1 was asking about the applications that may be causing the problems, and what software he has used to attempt to correct same. This information would enable appropriate reply's / advice from members

    Hi mate!

    What makes you think that you have Ad/Spyware problems?...could be other malware?...if you let us know a bit more we might be able to help quicker.

    What hardware system do you have, what operating system, how do you connect to the Internet? that kind of stuff...


    Most important... what have you seen that makes you think that you have a problem


    Hey!, I am not being funny, but this is fairly specialist malware...could also be a virus...a school prank....

    Please give us a few more clues..

    Cheers

    If adaware or spybot do not work you should download this http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and run it (don't fix anything just save the log) and then go to www.cexx.org and post your log on the message boards and some kind person will tell what to delete and it will surely fix your problem. The guys a cexx are VERY good at fixing browser hijackers and such. Cheers
