« on: March 28, 2004, 11:27 »

Try running Ad Aware and / or Spybot in Safe Mode, also with System Restore disabled.  Don't delete the stuff AA puts into quarrantine while you're still in Safe Mode - wait until you reboot to make sure everything still works OK, and don't forget to restart System Restore.
