    Try Search and Destroy, i use that alongside my virus scanner, as it picks up more trojans and spyware.

    SCANS ........with what ?? anti-virus or anti-spyware . Are you using Anti-virus software at all ??
    Some free AV programs are : AVG 9 , Avast , Avira . I would recommend Avira , it seems to find a lot of things others miss. One good bit of software for spyware is SuperAntiSpyware , free to .
    Get them a Majorgeeksdotcom , under the section headings on the left hand side of the page ie , AntiVirus ,AntiSpyware etc .Get CCleaner too from the same site , under the heading drive cleaners , it's free to and cleans out registry keys and stuff collected when surfing the net . HTH.

    use AMlwarebytes, gets rid of 99% of Trojens

    malwarebytes

    scaning spyware,yes he has anti virus protection on there im not sure which 1 im just a woman an dont know much about all this comp stuff we do have c cleaner too .............

    You cant go wrong with malwarebytes, its small program, and is free for personal use. Will get rid of all spyware. Most anti virus software will probably get rid of some files in connection with trojan or spyware but believe me it does NOT remove all of it, you will still be vulnerable to infection.

    Spybot & CCleaner, both very good
