Ive some horrible spyware problem in my computer. I have this balloon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen that pops up every 5 seconds telling me the my computer is infected as I have some spyware. Ive tried downloading some such as Ad-Aware SE Personal, which I dont know how to use, and cant seem to configure the spyware definitions and connect to the lavasoft server (message: Error retrieving data). Also tried downloading Spybot Search and Destroy which I cant seem to install. After I run everything and press ready to install, an error message pops up that says "Error sending request. A connection with the server could not be established".
How am i supposed to download an antispyware software when the anti-spyware doesnt even allow me to install it?? Im really puzzled and frustrated and any help would be greatly appreciated. At least I can still use the internet.
PS: just a note for your info- my antivirus definitions is about 220+ days over and I tried installing an online game the other day and got the same "Server Error" message.
