    Hi & Welcome to Wilders. Ad-Aware will find and get rid of RedSheriff but it re-enters your computer via java applets. What you need to do is download a nice free low resource program called IE-Spyad which will take care of RedSherriff for you from ever entering your computer again. Works well for me & since installation, have never had that data miner again.
