I am guessing I have some sort of adware virus. This is kind of hard to explain. When i use my yahoo search, all of the normal results come up, then 2 seconds later more results pop-up but i can tell it is spy/adware. How can i find this and get rid of it? Thanks

There are several free applications that will scan your hard drive and get rid of most spyware. These two programs, Spybot Search and Destroy and Ad-AwareSE are hightly recommended and used by members of this board. Once you have installed these two, be sure to update them (they have definitions just like anti-virus software), and then run them.
If you still have problems after using the two applications, post back, and we can take additional steps.
