I am operating a PC with Windows 2000 ME. I continually pick up loads of spyware. After running Adaware, I gain more and more files that it won't remove. They all begin with C:\_RESTORE\TEMP*.*. I also run Spybot and it advises that these files are write rotected I believe. Help needed!

Hello kenm

I am operating a PC with Windows 2000 ME

Could you clarify which operating system you are using? Is it Windows 2000 or is it Windows ME?

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
Ewido Install and Scan Instructions

Also download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

Then perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan [ActiveScan Panda does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.]

OK, skip Ewido and do the other scans.
