I've been working on a Windows ME system for 3 days. Just when I think I've got rid of all the spyware I still get POP-UPs. One thing I've noticed is when I click on an item in the IE browser normally the little Microsoft flag waves to indicate it's making the connection. I'm not familiar with ME but on this system the flag waves, the world turns, and I see what looks to be a lower case 'a' in the box. I'm assuming this means there is something on the system that I don't know about.
Also, is there a FAQ that tells the best process for getting rid of spyware, i.e., stop Restore, run in Safe Mode, run Microsoft updates, which program to run first, ...... ?
Can you help?
Thanks in advance.
