I ran the unregistered version of Spyware Doctor on my computer. It detected the following:

Spyware.known_Bad_sites (5 occurrences)
Trojan.PWS.Tanspy (1 occurrence)
Adware.Hotbar (1 occurrrence)

Please help me remove these threats.

Thanks you very much.

Install Super Antispyware free. 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.

How to Start Windows in Safe Mode:

Post back with results of the scans and for further instruction.

When using unregistered trial versions of most software, all the features may not work when the trial period expires. You can purchase and register your copy or remove it and use the free Spyware Doctor Starter Edition.
