So, I just got a new computer not that long ago and now a few months later, its full of spyware garbage. I have So many popups, I have some stupif extra toolbar called "fizzlebar" on my explorer, i have some "thunkgrywindow" toolbar, and my search now bar, and i have get rid of them all excepy the fizzlebar, However, they alwasy come back. I use spoybot and ad-aware, and everytime i do, they find lots of spyware and i get rid of it, and then the next day, its all back. I cant stand it!
Also, i think its effecting my msn, cause sometimes my used status on msn will change to idle every consequetive minute and when i want to change the status, it tell me that i cant to it and to try again later. Maybe its msn plus? I dont know, any help would be very appreciated!!

Hi,
Download "Hijack This!"
http://www.spywarein.../hijackthis.zip

Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, unzip, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

Double-click "HijackThis.exe" and Press "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Click: "Save Log" (generates: "hijackthis.log")

Copy and Paste the entire log into your next post.

Note: do not attempt to "Fix" anything, as we need to see the entire log.
Also if you have any Startup items unchecked in Msconfig, uncheck those items, reboot, then post a fresh log. HijackThis can not "see" disabled items in Startup.

Hint: after posting your log click "Track this topic" at the top of the page, this way you will be notified (email) when a response is made to your post.

I finally was able to beat "Fizzlebar". I got a link from a KSU student, and it works!
Try: http://www.fizzlewiz...uninstaller.exe

Works like a champ. Good luck!! Hope this helps.
