My computer is under attack by vicious spyware. I deleted alot of it with adaware, which elminated cool web search from my computer, but there is still a black backround that i CANNOT change which is a "warning" that tells me i am not protected against spyware and links me to anti spyware sights. My searches on yahoo and google are also modified so that they always come up on the same site, with what i typed in as a "search". These sights includ mortgage.com and other such bullbleep. Also i keep getting popups that tell me i have spyware!!
Well no bleep! I have adaware and spybott search and destroy and ran them both but they havnt taken out these problems. What do i do???????

Hi DC and welcome to Bleeping Computer.
Your problem is a very common one but
also easily solved. I also recommend the
links Pandy has graciously provided and
I also keep the link in my signature. It is
essential and no computer should be without
it. Good luck and again, welcome aboard.
