jiminy - right clicking and unchecking doesnt uninstall it.

screw - downloaded adaware 6.0 just to double check, spybot search and destroy couldnt do it

anyways what i did was just deleted random things i got from "hijack this"

and problem solved.

Please get Spybot S&D to clear out any spyware.
http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=mirrors


Install the program and open it.

Before doing any scanning click Online and Search for Updates .
Put a check mark at and install all updates .
Click Check for Problems nd when the scan is finished have Spybot fix all it finds marked in red .


Then after reboot :
Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the " scan " button will change into a " save log " button.
Press that, save the log , load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
