i just found out that newdot net has malware installed on my computer. I went to their site and downloaded a removal program. When it was finished it said the malware had been removed but when i ran my spyware program again, it said it was still there. This program is causing some serious browser hangs and it is disguised and cannot be located in add/remove programs or program files or windows. I know it is still there and I want it off my computer badly, but Dell wanted $99.00 to tell me how to do it. Can anyone help me????

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware SE (freeware).

Click on "Current Ad-Aware Info" in the bottom right hand box on their page.
You see the place to download the latest version.
It will be SE Build Version 106.

Download it, install it, then UPDATE IT!

Next - on the same page, scroll down to "uninstallers":
Download the When-U Uninstaller on the same download page (URL below)

Run Ad-Aware. Let it fix what it finds.

Then run the When-U uninstaller.

Let us know what happens.
