Hi slickchick74

Here's a couple of good programs you could try:

Spybot Search & Destroy

Hello slickchick74,

I strongly recommend SUPERAntiSpyware. You can find it here: SUPERAntiSpyware free found here: SUPERAntiSpyware. Be sure to click on the download button to the left, not on the free trial download on the right.

It finds a lot of things that Spybot and AdAware do not.

There is no harm in keeping them all.
If you run them as 'on demand' scanners ( meaning that you only run them when YOU decide) they won't interfere with each other.
These programs will search in a slightly different way and with different definitions.... so what one program may miss, another program may pick up.
