The answer is in your title. To get rid of spyware the common programs are lavasoft's adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy. Both are free on the net, and should help you out. I'd get both and run them from safemode.

and after doing that, install and update javacool spywareblaster. also free.

and for browsing, try mozilla firefox instead of say, internet explorer. you should be relatively clean from then on.

You want to get ride of <I>adware</I>, not ad-aware. In fact, you want Ad-Aware.

Ad-Aware http://www.lavasoftu...upport/download
Spybot S&D http://www.safer-networking.org/

and you mine as well get this free anti-virus too. doesn't slow down your computer. find the free edition http://www.grisoft.c...s_dwnl_free.php

spysweeper (free) is also a good one..
but be carefull alot of spyware removal programs can contain spyware

like someone pointed out above using different browser other than IE can help
IE is most widely used and hated (therefore most targeted).
try: netscape,mozilla, opera... also more secure than IE for same reason

you'll also want nortons antivirus always kept up to date. or whatever antivirus ur using

and finanly you can never fail with a good firewall
zone alarm at zonelabs.com
free trial

running a spy sweeper program, keeping your anti virus up to date and running a firewall should make you a happier man smile.gif
