Ok, so I've followed all the instructions on the page. Here is what I've done today (sorry if this is long), but I need to know if I need to do a hijack this log. I'm really bad at the computer language, but I'm learning and I appreciate your patience.
I downloaded Lavasoft ad aware. Ran it several times today. It seems like it doesn't get everything and when I reboot and run again, there are still things. Last time I ran it though after a reboot, there was only one "thing", so it seems as though it is working. I just have to keep running it and there are less "things" that it finds every time I run it after a reboot.
Ran Spybot. There are some Myweb things that it will not get rid of. Also, something called valumonte (?) keeps coming up. Spybot then tells me to reboot and do a scan at the start automatically with the internet disconnected. It doesn't get rid of the Myweb "things" (LOL). I've ran it at least 5 times today after a reboot.
I then downloaded McAfee Sting. Everything seems good with that program. It found some things, but I've used the scan on it since the first time and nothing pops up.
I added spyblaster. Not sure if it's working? But I added it because of a recommendation.
I got this computer from my brother recently who said that it was loaded with spyware and if I can get it to work properly, then I can have it! So, any help would be greatly appreciated.
I did download the Hijack this thingy, and was wondering if I need to pursue that or do something different first? It seems like everything works but when I reboot, the spyware comes back. Again, thanks for any info!
I also apologize for any lack of knowledge that I may have.
