First thing I would do is get two programs, Ad-aware & spybot S&D. Once installed you need to update them on the net. Once done start Ad-aware & make sure you have in scan within archives selected. You must place a check in the box along side any spyware it finds.
Then run Spybot & do the same.
Within Spybot you can download a program called spywareblaster, do that & update it once installed. This prevents spyware from being installed.
Try that & report back please.
