I checked out all the sites and link she went to. The bulk were from ad-driven software from Kazaa.

I run AdAware every few days. The highest # I got was one day's worth, 41. That was the day that my browser was highjacked, I found icons on my desktop and in my Start menu, new folders on my disk drive, etc. %#)($)%*#$ !!!!!

I hardly ever get any spyware on mine .. I use ad-aware pro 6 with the ad watch for the registry .. never lets any backdoor coding or spyware crap sneak in nor pop-ups either ...
