    Yesterday while online I got some realy bad spyware, called VIRTUNMUNDO and "thininstaller" (i think it was called "the best internet in the world"), among other things. It hijacked my browser and really made my computer run a little slower.

    I used ad-aware/spybot to remove this spyware (or so I thought...) For some reason, a few minutes after removing it, I began to get a few new tracking cookies on me without even visiting these websites or visiting any websites!!

    I thought I had gotten rid of the spyware but obviously the source is still around somewhere, because even today ad-aware is still finding tracking cookies for sites that I have never been to. I delete the cookies, and a few minutes later a different cookie takes its place (its almost like a cycle, there isnt a different cookie all the time, some of them being used are @edge.ru4[2].txt and also, @qksn[1].txt. Its not putting registry keys on me or anything else anymore, but I would just like to get rid of this already because I am paranoid enough with just have tracking cookies on me :p

    Here is my log I hope you guys can see something I dont, because I am baffled on how to remove this already. Thanks in advance for any help I really appreciate it

    Well I am starting to recieve less...I used to get tracking cookies out of nowhere on an hourly basis and now its about 1 or 2 per day I recieve...I think I may have deleted part of the source so maybe its not fully operational or something....I hope it goes away :doubt:
