I've been directed here by someone who says you can help. I apologise in advance, am a bit of a notgeek so will try to explain as best I can.

This morning started experiencing problems after visiting a forum I frequent where lots of other people experiencing problems - they suspect it's to do with adware. Problems were for example; email signature removed from emails, adobe acrobat wouldn't load until reboot, facebook; can read messages but can't post or see notifications or anything else.

did virus scan - kaspersky and loads upon loads of virus' trojans etc etc. Then ran malware and similar. Cleared all of these - rebooted and still loads coming up on kaspersky, as fast as I was clearing them they were coming again. Nothing on malware so was advised to download and run superantispyware which came up with 300+ dangerous files. Got rid of those, got rid of kaspersky ones, rebooted and all seemed calm for a while.

In meantime I also installed adblocker.

Am currently running kaspersky again and at 16% complete its found 18 dangerous objects, malware has found nothing yet and superantisphy has so far found 23 adware:tracking cookie.

This is of course gobbledegook to me so if any of you can point me in the right direction I really would be most grateful - I have spent 5 hours now tryng to get this sorted.

many thanks
