my OH had all sorts of horrid things going on and a completely red desktop with a skull on it and I downloaded the free version of super antispyware which cleared the lot.
Thanks, will try that if spybot does not pick anything up and stops freezing. ARGH!!!

Rep left to both
Have you been able to run AVG or Spybot for a complete scan?

Also I would not connect the pc to the internet whilst doing these scans.

Are you getting any messages popping up?

Can you check your Add/ Remove Programs for any items that you are unsure what they are?

Between AVG and Spybot you should get something to advise what is causing the problem.
will try that later, scanning without internet.

AVG found a tracking cookie? What is that. Thanks
[url]www.avast.com[/url] does a system reboot and scans for changes before windows even boots up. Great for getting rid of nasty little viri.
Nothing to worry about. Just shows you've been on a particular site

Look out for malware/ spyware and trojans - these should be flagged by the scan

Is your pc quite new?

I suggested to a work colleague to purchase additional memory which seemed to help them after removing a virus.

It's a lot faster...

Any programs you recommend to delete tracking cookies
In Firefox, select Tools, Options, Privacy...
You will see the cookies options, select ask me everytime, from the drop down menu.


Under the same tab, you can select private data, Settings and choose to delete them, or not when you close Firefox.

Hope it helps :)

Oh ye', and in IE its Tools, Internet Options, Privacy, Advanced, and select Override automatic cookie handling, and choose your options.
