    For a free way to get rid of them go to http://www.download.com search and download spybot and adaware.

    I would recommend purchasing an antivirus program, Norton or McAfee. These antivirus programs not only stops virii they also have protection agaisnt malware, pop ups and adware.

    Hope that helps!

    Click on the following link:

    http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Spybot_Search...

    Then click on the large "Download Now" button on the right.

    Follow the installation wizard and be sure to create a system restoration point and backup your registry when it asks.

    After updating, run the "Immunizations". After that, run the actual scan. It should detect and find several spyware programs. After it is completed, you will likely need to reboot.

    You may want to get an Anti-Virus scanner as well. Try out this one:

    Click on the "avg75free_430a848.exe" link. Should be a pretty straightforward install.
