hi, i dont know THAT much about computers. i do however know that mine is being severly raped by spyware and adware and trojans. i currently have ad-aware 6.0, spybot search and destroy, up to date norton anti virus 2004, spy sweeper, and pest patrol (trial/scan only). ive known that ive had spy/ad ware problems for a while now..but they were too minor for me to really care about past running ad-aware. recently ive been bombarded with popups and other websites i have visited all show links to the offer the popups are showing. i think it is v shield or something to that affect. im really not interested in that program nor will i ever click on the links/windows. i have noticed a substantial decrease in my computers performance (im running broadband). websites i visit have a tendency to disable me from typing in anything..such as this website a few moments ago, i tried to register and had to close it out and start all over. what i care about is what i notice on the surface, COMPLETE ANNOYANCE. i would insert a picture to further illustrate what is wrong but im new and it would more than likely not work. im rambling..but im in dyre need of help of anyone who knows how to fix what is wrong with my pc (that you can gather either through here or via private messaging). two of my main problems are euniverse.com/sirsearch.com, and recently "clientman" along with something that inserts green bars and hyperlinks into key words on websites such as "movie" or "car". i just downloaded spy sweeper which claims to handle clientman but i havent noticed any changes as of yet..but then again i havent rebooted. anyways, sorry i went on about nothing basically, im just ready to beat this piece with a hammer and never use computers again (figuratively speaking). HELP!!!
