When I turn on my computer it shuts off by itself sometimes and the internet connection thing never shows up. I think it may be becuase I have so many freakin viruses and spyware. The only way I can actually run my computer is in Safe Mode but I cant get to the internet in safe mode so I can download a program to get rid of Spyware.

What Im asking:

Can I get the internet in Safe Mode

What spyware programs can I download for free

Do you think that I have a different problem

If you have XP you can use "Safe Mode with networking".
All of the following are free.

AntiVirus. Run only one. Uninstall any other AV including out date.
AVG Free Edition Antivirus(I personally use)
Avast Home Edition Antivirus Freeware

Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta
AdAware SE Personal Edition
Ewido Security Suite - 14 day trial

Utility for cleaning temp files and cookies

Firewall programs. Disable windows firewall before enabling on of these.
Sygate 5.4
Zone Alarm
