Assuming you are running XP.
Make sure all windows up dates are done.
Make sure Ad-aware is up to date.
If on ASDL disconnect so your PC can not connect to Internet.
Install a fire wall I use Zone alarm. Then you can monitor what goes in and out of your PC.
Run Adaware. Delete all that it finds.
Check Add/remove programs for any signs of dodgy software.
If you are doing P2P downloading .. get rid of that too. It is notorious for filling you up with spyware... esp if not a legal version.
TO be sure run a virus checker like AVG (its free)
Hope this helps.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
