    Hi, Im new here. I found this forum through a search, im having major spyware problems.

    My problems are:

    • Weird results in Google searches.
      There's wierd results like that in every search I do, they're obviously spyware-related.
    • When I right-click in an IE window when online I get a "web savings" option. Definately wasent there before.
    • I get popups when using IE, everytime a new page is loaded a popup automatically comes up. They go away after like 3 seconds, very strange.
