just ran a quick scan with spyware doc and it found this application.nircmd 4 infections but think it could be combofix it didnt find adclicker.i use pc guard from virgin media and upgraged to get the spyware with it dont know if its any good. pc guard only finds it after i restart my pc. but does find it everytime cheers

Nircmd is part of Combofix. As pc guard is the only one to find it I would suspect that it is a false positive - and the reviews from users that I have read are not to good. However, be that as may I believe you are now clean

also my mozilla is displaying certain sites differently today ie geekstogo\facebook a bit weird.

What way wierd ? :)

flash player also have restarted my pc and done roughly 5 scans with pc guard and its come back clean each time no adclicker. which usually it always comes back shall i reboot then try again and see if it returns. as for how does it display for instance when you asked earlier to copy everthing in the box there was no box and each post is normally in its own box . now there is just the writing no boxes dividing each one if that makes sense

Cookies are a fact of life you need them to use the websites

Sound like the web pages are displaying in lofi which could happen if you disable flash

Visit this site and run the software inspector it will tell you if you need to update flash http://secunia.com/software_inspector/
I use this facility every few months

That is just because they are held in different locations.

Could you reboot then run ATF to clear the caches and let me know if you still have the problem
