spybot - search and destroy is well past it's sell by date
it is quite useless now
it is a very old program.
I suggest you run a scan with malwarebytes .
you can get malwarebytes here,
this is a direct download link
so you should have no trouble getting it.
click on this link ↓ and then select run.
INSTALL IT TO YOUR DESKTOP, update it,
then run a full scan and remove everything it finds.
some viruses will try to disable it
so if malwarebytes will not start up/install
save it to your desktop,
before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like XXXX.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first
if it still will not install,
Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.
If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..
after you have used malwarebytes then do this online scan.
to make sure you have nothing else hiding away.
preferably in safe mode with networking.

I bought a cd of screensavers at best buy. I got sick of all the spyware online.
