Its all up to you as a community to contribute and learn from one another. So keep on posting.
Take care and thanks again everyone!
My daughter's Windows XP SP2 computer is full of spyware.
I've used Spybot, Spy Doctor, and Ad-aware, and they've
recognized some spyware and removed it, but some just won't
go away. What's driving me crazy is her computer starts
spitting out pop-ups (30 to 40 in 10 minutes) without me
opening a single program while the computer is still booting
up! Whatever this is, it's active as soon as the computer is
on. Disconnecting my cable modem so far is the only way to
stop all the pop-ups. Please help!! What's a dad to do?
