Evening all! Let me start by calling myself a computer idiot. I really don't know much about computers and they frustrate me easily. I've visited your Tutorials section earlier. The tutorials on Spyware Blaster and on Spybot S&D are really helpful and straightforward. In addition to those two programs, I've downloaded and run Ad-Aware SE. I've also done a 'system scan only' using HijackThis, and I'll (try to) post the results in the appropriate forum.

Welcome to BC!
Spending some spare time reading the information accumulated here will soon make you much less of a "computer idiot."
Regards,

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I called myself an idiot because for the longest time, Spybot-S&D was my only defense vs. viruses, malware, etc. besides my router's firewall.
