Yes I'm feeling wacko! I attend to 35 PC's at work as a technician, and lately all I do is clean out spyware. But also I've been having to reformat drives and reinstall OS's because I can't seem to get rid of the dll causing the popups. I joined this site to learn how to remove these stealth installations without having to reformat the drives. I'm also looking for a small business spyware scanner that will prevent downloads like toolbars etc before they cause the damage. I have adaware but it's not removing stuff already there.

looking forward to finding answers!
