both my browers seem to have been hacked. won't goto links keeps bringing up ad's. I thought it was just firefox and uninstalled it but now its on IE. I've ran ad aware and symantec but its not getting rid of it. Spybot won't install for some reason. can't connect to the server to download. anyone got any tips?

If you know someone with a pc download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on there pc copy it onto a memory stick / camera memory card / cd /dvd then run it on your pc. It does work or contact me with your e-mail address and I will e-mail it to you as it`s only 2mb.

I think that's the best course of action before re-installing.
