    well the first things you should do are get the opinion of some professionals. ad-aware is a very reputable product. spybot search & destroy is another good name. both are spyware scanner and best part is they're free.

    as for viruses/worms there are several free online scanning engines available. panda antivirus and eTrust have good scans. there are also others out there but thats a good place to start.

    Hi, welcome to TechSpot! :wave:

    Please be sure to read the guide in my signature and to search Google and the TS forums before posting any questions. Enjoy your stay at TS!

    Try starting a new thread in our Security and the Web forum. Just say that you think it is infected, and give some symptoms that your PC has been having, and somebody will be with you shortly. ;)

    Regards :)
