hello all,

two times now, when I go to start adaware to do a scan, my computer just re boots???

does this mean I am possibly infected ?? or maybe just conflicting with some of the other programs I am currently running.

Ad aware
Spybot S&D
AVG anti spyware
Spyware blaster
Spyware guard
Avast AV

I run these programs every couple of days, is there any particular order that they should be run. Should they be run in safe made??

Ever since my security problems started, I cant help feeling that my personal info is being monitored so I no longer do my personal banking on line anymore, and I really miss this. My computer is about a year and a half old, and I dont have a CD, is this needed to reformat my computer?? or can I use the PC doctor software that came installed on my computer??? and if so, will this completely erase everything on my pc and allow me to start from fresh???

thanks and sorry for the loooong question.

Try running it in Safe Mode.

If that doesn't resolve the problem, see if anything in these thread helps:
