I was accessing a comic book website don't exactly remember the name but anyways I got hit by the Adware.MWSearch threat and I have no idea why my Norton Antivirus let it through. I went back in and it disabled my Norton Antivirus. So I did a scan of my computer and found a file named azesearch4.exe and another file iasada.dll as well as iacad.dll. I was able to isolate them and remove them through safe mode. I also went into the registery like the symantec website tells me too, but I still have adware programs in my toolbar(saying that my computer is infected with spyware and to click on the icon). Also I have a popup that says my computer has been affected by malicious program and to click it to fix the problem. I have done numerous scans and gone through and deleted all affected files and also used Spybot Search and Destroy and they all say my computer is clean. Although I still have this popup to deal with and the two icons in my toolbar. So how do I remove those from my toolbar and get my computer back up and running?
