I've had spyware on another computer before and had a really hard time getting rid of it... but now it seems i have nothing to go on except the fact that although i have the google toolbar and the pop up stopper activated i get unwanted popups, i seem to be having some spyware problem obviously
can anyone help?

Hi Missy

You can try getting and running Ad-Aware and Spybot. These two free programs are the best at finding and removing spyware. If you still have trouble, try posting a hijackthis log in the 'Malware Removal' forum. I think you'll have to join SWI to do this. Hth.
