try to uninstall the toolbar from add & remove programs. those things are famous for installing spyware.

get the microsoft anti spyware beta program for free, has lots of nice tools built into it and the spyware scan for it is the best & fastest I've seen.

When you install MSN plus there are TWO liscense agreements. Read them both and you will notice that one is for '3rd party' software. Just decline the 3rd party agreement in future and MSN plus will still install, just minus the Spyware.....

I have to agree with everyone here about the Microsoft Antispyware App. It's DAMN good. They actually purchased a company called GIANT SPYWARE and their Spyware APP. This program works extremely well.

I run, Norton Internet Security 2005, MS Antipyware, Service Pack 2 and only use firefox. I never have pop-ups or spyware.
