Hey guys, starting this morning I can't download any files. Oh my, so I knew there was some form of spyware on my computer so i started downloading al lthese anti-whatevers and none of them worked. I found out i had the ngpw36(40).exe and killed it with killbot. But before that I system restored to a date where I haven't deleted off my anti-spyware things and now I can't re-uninstall them.. should I download them again? Anyways also, when i log on it says something about adprot... runtime error I think. Please help, I can't download anything!

Do you have access to another computer?
You can download them, put them on a disk, and transfer them to your computer.
Run them in Safe Mode.
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Suggested programs:
aČ free
ewido security suite
Spybot S&D

These 2, will help prevent spyware/malware from being installed in the first place:

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

Helpful Tutorials:
Using Ad-Aware SE
Using SpywareBlaster
Using SpywareGuard
Using Ewido

If possible, run these online virus scanners:

Good adivce above all I would add is after running the checks you will certainly have a cleaner system.

Also download HJT Hijackthis and post a log for analysis to rid your machine of the lingering stuff. Do the other checks first though or it will cause delays getting your HJT log analyzed.

Make sure you have the latest version OF HJT which is 1.99.1 and run it from a permanent folder only. If it is in a temp folder it will not make any backups.

Good luck
