  1. Hey you guys I was wondering if you could help me with a problem I have. I seem to have some kind of spyware or something on my computer and it keeps making pop ups appear, I've tryed to remove it with Ad-aware 7, XSpy Shield Gold and Spyware Doctor and it hasn't worked.

    Did those programs detect it at least?

    If they detected it, but can't remove it, try booting into safe mode (tap the F8 key a split second before the Windows logo appears during boot up and choose "Safe Mode" from the menu).

    Run your anti-spyware/virus programs here (if possible). They'll be much more likely to remove it, since Safe Mode usually won't load them. Make sure you update your programs in regular Windows before booting into Safe Mode.
