    Try these, I have included an antiviral in case you dont have a current one.

    Antiviral. (free)

    AVG free. Excellent protection available from: http://www.grisoft.com/

    Don't use two antiviral products together as they may be incompatible. If your Antiviral trial has run out, then remove product from your computer and get the AVG installed.

    Anti-spyware (all free)

    Essential products are: Adaware SE from: http://www.lavasoft.com/

    Spybot SD http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index....

    Spywareblaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.htm...

    Windows Defender - from Microsoft downloads.

    PC starter kit at download.com 20 of the best recommended programes for people new or less advanced in computers. Check all three pages, at bottom see Security/Tools/Fun

    http://www.download.com/PC-Starter-Kit/2001-12350_...

    C Cleaner.http://www.ccleaner.com/

    This will tell you a lot about what is on your computer, such as running programmes,cookies, History, settings etc. and will help you clean up and remove unwanted items. Be careful how you use it as it is a very powerful programme and you should read the help index before you do anything with it.

    You could download a program called Adaware SE that works well at download.com. If that doesn't work and nothing else does, you could always do a system restore as a last resort.

    Go to the link below and download AdAware SE AND Spyware Blaster.

    That should keep all the spyware off your computer

    Here are some that you can try from Download.com

    Spybot Search & Destroy

    Ad-aware

    Do the download, then install, update and Scan. Then restart the computer into Safe Mode and scan it again.

    At some point, you might want to use the RESTORE disk and start from scratch. Then, make sure that you run a tight ship. Use FireFox from www.Mozilla.com for general surfing. Use a firewall, such as Zone Alarm.

    Both ad-aware and spybot search and destroy are good. I also keep a "junkmail" email address that I use when I have to register for things. That way less junk gets into my inbox. Then once a month or so I log on to the junk mail email address and delete what I don't want/need.
