    Anti-Spyware


    My comp has been flooded with spyware, I have exactly 202 spyware files on my computer. I just recently found out what the problem was, and why it was going so slow. The popups are crazy. I need help. I can't find a free anti-spyware program that allows me to delete the files, not just something that tells me how many, that much I know.

    This is urgent, my computer is screwed. Please someone give me a URL of where I could download a good spyware program.

    Ad-aware from www.lavasoft.de is pretty darn good, and it's free: have you tried that?

    After you're back together, I'd make sure not to install anything sketchy, or look up what you're going to install first. Hint: Anything that is a one-click install from a browser is suspect.

    Another excellent spyware/malware remover:

    Download, update, immunize and run:

    Spybot Search & Destroy
