I came here after reading an article in the Guardian UK about how to remove Malware from a computer.
I had installed several programs to cleanly remove a "Bandoo" product so that it would no longer redirect my home page to *#()(@)# Ask.com, and none of them cleaned it, even though I could do a simple search of the registry and see lots of gnarliness still ententacling my computer.
I then installed adw and BAM, all done.
Who knows, I may never come here again, but I thought I should at least post and say thanks! Something tells me I will be back though .\
