Please could you help. I had an invasion this morning which spyware guard alerted me to. Trouble is it keeps returning every 30 seconds with pop-up adverts and warnings. I thought my computer was pretty well protected, but obviously not.

I've sorted it. No need to respond. When I downloaded MSN Messenger-Plus it also installed it's sponser's software which is what was causing the continual hijacking. It also added its own batch of favorites to the dropdown menu which I could not delete.

When I uninstalled MSN Messenger-Plus, it gave me the option to uninstall only the sponser's software which I did and "JOB DONE" no more hijacking!
