Hi. I am having some big problems. I ran Adaware and it deleted over 60 spy wares. It said it couldn't delete 2 files. My computer is still slow and I still get popups. I also have this Web Rebates. I would be very grateful if someone could help me out to get my system running properly again. Thanks in advance.

Hi Katze and welcome to geekstogo.
Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it 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.

Fisrt go to your Control Panel, Add/Remove programs and uninstall the following programs:
C:\Program Files\Windows SyncroAd\SyncroAd.exe
C:\Program Files\Web_Rebates\WebRebates0.exe
C:\Program Files\Web_Rebates\WebRebates1.exe
You only need one Anti-virus scanner. I see references to three in your log.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\localNRD.dll
C:\PROGRA~1\INCRED~1\BHO\INCFIN~2.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msbe.dll
C:\Program Files\Windows SyncroAd <<this folder
C:\Program Files\Web_Rebates
C:\WINDOWS\System32\xmulnz.exe

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

Here is my new log. My system seems a little less bogged down but I was having trouble and it kept rebooting over and over again for five times in a row.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
