  1. Hello, first time on this forum. I have a laptop that has spyware on it (inherited it from family). I have been cleaning it up with adware, free version of registry mechanic and got rid of alot of stuff, but "people on page" (I think that is the name) some sort of spyware is still on my computer. I am sick of all the pop ups. I have attached my hijack this log. Please take a look and let me know if anything looks fishy. My laptop is freezing up too, not sure if it is related or not. Any help is greatly appreciated, I would like to use this computer fo school if I can get it running right. Oh, by the way, I am using windows 98 OS, I think it is first edition but updated via windows update sight (not sure if that means it is second ed. now).

    Thanks - Aaron
