Spyware - says my registry is hacked

  1. Trying to help a friend running Win2K with SP4.

    Somehow, he's got some spyware/malware installed it would seem.

    Whenever you use a dialup connect to login to your ISP, you continually get popup messages saying the registry has been hacked, go to such and such website, to get the software to fix obviously. It would seem there are 50 different websites to go to - probably all the same entity.

    Adware SE doesn't see this.

    1 - agree that we've been hacked?
    2 - best tool to fix this?

    TIA
