Running Win98 SE. Have run Spybot, tried to run Adaware, downloads but won't run. Norton 2004 installed, Zone Alarm Pro installed. Getting loads of pop ups, (Casino, mortgages,) ads for spyware removers toolbars I don't want, icons on my desktop, loads of stuff has entered itself into my Favourites folder which I can't remove. If computer is left on, I get messages saying system resources low, so something is draining the computer. I am at my wits end! I have tried all sorts of spy removal tools & nothing works. Here is the log:

All seems well. Thanks alot. No unwanted things in favourites, no unwanted toolbars, no pop up adverts for casinos, mortgages or anything. Is there anything I can do to stop this crap invading me again?

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

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. ;)
