I have found today, after 3 weeks of crap with CWS.LoadAdw.400, that this, whatever it is, likes to park an exe file in the C:\windows\prefetch folder.
This tells me that it is always primed and ready to go.
In my case, the file was named: LISA.EXE-29247534.pf
I also found a second file named: LISA.EXE-089A6ED5.pf
I found this file with an anti-spyware software trial called Spyware Doctor.
Since it was a trial.........I couldn't do anything. But I took the names of the files it found and went hunting them down........and, bingo, up came the two files in prefetch.
Now, suggest you test this out with an expert. At the very least, before you delete every file in Prefetch, you had better check it out with some tech support desk.
PS, I am not a tech expert....just a frustrated user like everyone else.
PPS: This file comes from PORNO sites........make sure you don't click random links posted on chat sites you frequent (in my case, Yahoo Financial)....
While, indeed there was some interesting views, it sure in hell is not worth the HELL you pay for going there..................LOL!
