    Default spyware remover

    I'm having some problems with my PC lately, so I'm not sure what to do after trying Norton and other common antivirus software and didn't succeed. I'm begining to think this might be a spyware trouble, but still can't find a good solution.

    So the question is if you can please suggest me a good spyware remover tool to fix this annoying problem, I hope you can help me. Thanks

    Yep, Spybot will take care of any spyware you might have.

    Microsoft AntiSpyware is also pretty good.

    Ad-Aware Personal/Professional is good too.

    I have Ad-Aware professional version. I would have to say that it wasn't that useful. It didn't pick up any spyware found by Spybot or Microsoft AntiSpyware. However, I keep it because it also scans you internet cookies for tracking cookies which is nice. It also comes with Ad-watch which monitors your computer registry for changes and stuff.

    haggy chances are you problably got hacked or in other words somebody sent you a really good trojan. some trojans do exactly wut spyware does and more. if you notice any missing files or something suspicuios it's problably a trojan. alot of homemade trojans CAN'T be detected by scanners therefore you must either wait until the person who sent you the trojan to clean it off your comp(most smart ones do becuase they don't want to be detected by a scanner and possibly give out thier ip) or wait for an update on some of the above scanners.
    Ok, now I really don't have anything to put in here -.-

    For crying out loud, it's not "hackers".

    Just look after your PC a bit, don't install crap, don't run things you don't need to be running, and do a spyware and virus scan. Don't listen to kids on the Internet who write 103 word long sentences.
