OK, I've done EVERYTHING here. I've done the Hijack This scan, and deleted a bunch of stuff (in fact, I have to do this as soon as I turn my computer on, or else I won't get anywhere on the net). I've done adaware, and I keep erasing the same stuff. This is what happens - I get a bunch of popups, and GAIN Publishing asks me if I want to install - I always click no. Next thing I know, this Lycos Extra Search stuff is all over the place. That comes with a bunch of folders being put in my Program Files folder called IST Solutions (something like that), 1800 solutions and Internet Optimizer. It's become a real hassle - every session I'm having to reboot atleast twice. Also, when I control alt del, I find things like Msbb and a bunch of other odd stuff. I definitely need help here - I have no idea what else to do besides reformat, and I have entirely too much stuff on my computer to do that. Some suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
