Have you scanned for spyware?

This was happening to me a few weeks ago and I had my hijack this log checked out, and it turned out I had a whole heap of spyware on my computer that Ad-Aware wasnt removing.

Have you tried Bazooka, they provide an oline encyclopedia, and manual removal instructions for most of the nasty spyware out there.

Since I have removed the spyware manually, I havent had 1 problem with my computer.

Hope the helps.

cheers for the advice. I have a few bits and pieces protecting my system , namely spysweeper, adaware, but something is still geting through. i am going to post a copy of my log and if any of you would have a look it'd be great as i aint too up on the jargon of code at all at all.....

//moved to Windows forum.
I'll take a look at your log and let you know if I spot anything. Posting a hijackthis log is not a problem here, but there aren't many who are experts at it. You'd probably get more efficient answers to a hijackthis log at the appropriate forum (not intending to direct anyone away from OZZU):

I've run through the 3 or 4 tasks I didn't recognize in your running processes and didn't find any problems. Nor did I see anything out of the ordinary in your regkeys. I assume you are on ME? Have you done anything recently (Windows updates, etc) that may have had an impact on your system?
