i've got a really annoying problem with adware/spyware or something in IE, i've run ad-aware and it's not found anything...this is what i get instead of the "page cannot be found" page (and i get another window which pops up about stopping pop ups! it's links to a site called www.warnet.com and i have no idea what that is...) click for bigger pic



oh and there's also another annoying toolbar that's somehow been installed for my pleasure, don't know what that is either, it's got a very suspicious looking name...



any ideas?

Spybot-S&D is the best freeware application fro getting rid of things like that I have ever come across. Ad-Aware V6.0162
hangs a lot and has a non responding thing quite often.

I always recommend Spybot.

Try Adware, and when I had a problem like this someone gave me a program called Hijackthis.zip it seemed to fix the problem.

This problem should be pretty much covered now that Enyo has posted a link to the "Cleaning and Prevention" thread. Every app mentioned here is listed and linked in that thread. :)

Exact opposite here, spyBot always hangs and stops responding, while Ad-Aware does its job really fast.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
