  1. I have been inundated with pop-ups and google has been giving me a page adds for smart pages, etc as the first page of my search results, Internet explorer has been crashing frequently as I am closing the pop-ups. I have ran spy-bot and cleaned all that i found there, but still it persists.
    I ran hijack this, here is the report:

    Lavasoft Ad-Aware 6
    Install, update definitions, and run a complete scan.

    SpyBot - Search and Destroy
    Install, update definitions, and run a scan after ad-aware.

    SpyWare Blaster
    A nice tool to stop the pop ups to install stuff--Active X and such. I love it.

    Scan for viruses
    Update your virus definitions if you have anti-virus. If you don't, click the link and do an online virus scan.

    Hehe, I just posted this info. :D
