My laptop has been recently infected by some malware which I think is generating cookies and adware every time I connect to the internet. I have made several attempts to clear my computer of this nuisance by downloading and running SuperAntiSpyware program but it's no use. Once this progam is run it finds and removes 20+ adware and 20+ cookies then I reboot and sure enough once i browse the net again and run SuperAntiSpyware or Norton the same amount of cookies and adware are found again!! what a head ache.

Also while browsing strange adult site pop-ups appear from time to time.

The task manager also shows my internet explorer at 50,000K upon start up and then grows to 100,000K+ even with only one tab open on a simple website.

I don't know what, where, why this is happening. I just guess it is a spyware generator of some sort... I am clueless!

How do I clean and protect my laptop once and for all?

Please help...
