Spyware problems

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I recently downloaded Tracon from free-game-downloads.free-wishes.com They host abandonware games. It prompted me to use a downloader to avoid "file theft". Upon using this downloader I saw a Dos box flash as if something was being installed and I thought here comes trouble. Sure enough, I am now being deluged with Pop-up ads and banners from valuead.com and other Czech companies. The banner ads are placed all over the web pages.I run Ad-Aware and Spybot but I still cant find what was placed in my PC to cause this. I run XP Pro.Please can anyone help me??????????SimonEdited for spelling

This utility allows you to look at your registry, your start-up progs, etc -- I use it all the time to get rid of stuff left behind when I uninstall somethingIt's called jv16 power tools available at: http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/programs/jv16pt_setup.exeAnother recommended prog for this sort of thing is Spybot Search & Destroy (filename: spybotsd11.exe). Sorry, I can't give you a URL, I don't recall where I got it but I think Tucows or one of those probably have it.>>>EDIT ooooops! I see you've tried Spybot..... AdAware is defunct -- they are no longer updating it. I understand they're rewriting it.Calhover long and prosper
