Sorry, this might be a rather elementary question, but can I run spyware removal software (Ad Aware, Spy Bot S&D) and HJT in safe mode - will that get everything? I'm running into memory issues when I try to run with normal boot.

Welcome to GTG.

Yes, you may run all those in safe mode except for HijackThis. We need the log for that in Normal Mode. All these programs will not 100% get everything. Sometimes we need third party tools to help us out.

So do that first and try to get a HijackThis log.
