    He only wants Adaware SE to protect it. His computer keeps having stuff pop up when he presses some keys. He has superantispyware running and does not want spybot or spywareblaster. Also a message keeps coming up saying that he has to do a system restore. I need to get this off of his computer.

    If this is his computer,.. then you can only advise.
    But this would happen on a regular basis unless correct measures for prevention where made. If your brother is not able, or willing for these measures to be applied for his own (PC) protection, then concern from you will only give you an headache.

    I am with Stem on this. :thumb:

    I have no willingness to assist those with such an attitude towards prevention :(

    Well the scans found nothing and he uninstalled them. He said the computer is working now.

    It is still true that "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."

    Install windows defender on his computer when his back is turned, it runs silently in the background so he won't know its there until it saves him the next time he gets infected.

    How about installing a rootkit to hide all the security programs you install on his computer? lol.
