and welcome to BleepingComputer!
I will pass your thanks on to Grinler - i'm sure he will appreicate it. It sure is annoying but it sure does give a great sense of victory once you finally get rid of it! Stick around for a bit and take a look around the site. You might like to take a look here
for guides on new user orientation, and then post any questions if you have them.
I'm gonna pass on the thanks now.
