Posted 26 May 2004 - 01:59 AM

I recently have been bombed with a bunch of spyware, I don't recall clicking on any of those little boxes that pop up to install them, so I really have no idea how to get rid of them.

I've ran AdAware about 20 times, and it deleted all of it. There were about 50 files that needed to be quarrantined and I did just that. They're still there.

I get random popups when I'm not even looking at pages, and when I go to google to search for something, it makes it's own search on google and brings up a popup add to whatever I searched for.

It was also underlining different words on different pages and hyperlinking them to pages about whatever the word was.

How do I get rid of this? Thanks.

Alright, I ran that Search And Destroy program and it deleted a bunch of stuff. Like 17 different SpyWare files, but the Google thing still happens. Any ideas on what it is?

Yes I do have an idea what is is, but I will need your HijackThis log to help you get rid of it.

Whatever explanation you think is easier:
