Well, i've read these forums and the advice given is great. I have quite a few spyware problems, with popups coming up every now and then. I have tried many options, including HJT (HJT being the best so far), but there are always a few popups coming up. The performance of my PC has also seemed to have been affected by this. Also, I cannot access "taskmanager" because it says its "being used by another program ot person" Any help will be appreciated.
