    Hi shawyn, and welcome to Wilders.

    It is difficult to tell what has happened after you've scanned with Spybot S&D since you have not mentioned what spyware it has detected and removed. If you could also give us more details like what your operating system is, other security programs you've used, and also what kind of error message (if any) you are receiving when going to your webmail, that would definitely help. :)

    Since you have said you've uninstalled Spybot, you might want to try Ad-Aware SE Personal and see if that works any better for you. It may take several scans with a reboot inbetween to completely remove some of the more stubborn spyware.

    If you are still finding the spyware coming back, then you may want to consider posting a HijackThis log at one of the anti-spyware forums for further cleaning. You can find a list of forums that offer this type of system cleaning here: ASAP

    The two bigger forums for HijackThis log processing, (meaning they process more log threads each day than most others) are: SpywareInfo.com and CastleCops.com. Be sure to read their posting policy in the links at their log review forum sections prior to posting.

    It probably wouldn't hurt to do an on-line virus scan too. You can find a list here: Free Services

    Regards,

    snap

    Hi Shawyn welcome to Wilders. Once your system is clean I would suggest taking a look here for further discussion on security and how to make your system that much stronger and here for more.

    Let us know how you go…
