Newbie on laptop with lame desktop that can no longer access the internet. Desktop does not have AdAware, Spybot, nor HJT. Upon dial in, my home page pops up for one second, and then I am unable to change page, or go anywhere else on IE. Page indicates updatenow.org spyware on the pc.

Is there anyway that one can
1) reboot in Safte mode, and access the internet to get a virus scan, download AdAware, Spybot, and HJT?
2) If I were to download AdAware, Spybot, and HJT to laptop, can the programs be saved to disc and then uploaded on the PC?
3) Can I use Ctl-Alt-Del / Program Manager to stop updatenow.org to be able to access the net?

:thumbsup: stiff by this one!

You can try safe mode with networking if you have XP.
