My mom uses a docked Dell laptop running Windows 2000, and for the past few months it has gotten horribly infested with all kinds of spyware, adware, and viruses. It started with CWS (Smartsearch variant) which I was eventually able to get rid of, but traces have popped up again along with a seemingly unrelated constant barrage of popups and url redirections. Also, when I used Housecall to scan for viruses last night, it came up with ELEVEN, two of which it couldn't even identify beyond name. I've just run Hijackthis on it and got the following log:

If somebody could please help that'd be awesome, as I'm about to throw the thing out the window or at least reformat it entirely :weep:

Bumping because now it can't display webpages at all, although Outlook still works for email...
