Hello, my name is Mark, and I've been having some problems with this box. Its a brand new box (2.8Ghz ;)) and it cost me a crap-load of money.

Thats one of the minor reasons I'm writing this post/topic, please bear with me while I explain and try to help.

Here goes:

If any of you have heard, runescape is a very popular, free JAVA game which currently occupies my lunch hours ;). I have been playing the game for a few weeks now, and I really enjoyed it, however, there was a little ad problem. So I searched, being the curious man I am, and found this client. The website said it was clean, so I though: 'Why not?!!?' How wrong I was.

The client worked fine, no ads or anything, however, when I restarted windows, it locked on the windows loading screen. (the black one)

I started the computer in safe mode, ran AD-AWARE and SpyBot. AD-AWARE found 13 critial objects, Spybot 5. All of which I deleted.

When windows started again, Under my username tab, it stated that I have 213 new emails. The thing is, I did not program anything to log into my email acound and give me my email status. I logged into my email, and deleted the spam emails.

The main point, everytime when I log in, AD-AWARE keeps finding the same spyware, same with SpyBot, even though I delete them every time.

And also, AD-AWARE keeps finding the same negligible objects, again and again (some MRU list, which i did not enable)

I dont know whats the problem, I keep on deleting this garbage, yet it keeps coming back, I deleted the client, all of it. I fear that something might be seriously wrong here, keyloggers, trackers. I want out and I want my computer fixed! :tazz:

Please suggest programs (free) that will fix my computer, or give me detailed instructions on what to do.

Btw, I ran Norton, finds nothing.

Thanks for your time.

Geekstogo is fortunate to have the greatest adaware experts in the known universe right here:

http://www.geekstogo..._aware-f62.html

I would start there, then if they cannot help you, move on to the malware forum...
