Use the two free programs below to help identify and remove malware. It is a good idea NOT to use Hijack This unless you are being guided by an expert in it's use.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Please let us know the results.

What kind of spyware? Can you provide the name and location of it? What program is advising you about this spyware? This could provide a clue as to what malware has infected your system.

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"? Are you doing scans while logged into the Administrator's account or an account with administrator privileges?

Its difficult to properly help someone when they do not provide any specific information other than to say they have spyware.
