Sammy_Jo: I Just read the Ewido Report & Each & Every .....
item it found WAS removed by Ewido !! Did you Update definitions B-4 scan ? If you did, then you may, at this point, completely clean. Ewido Downloaded program, after updates, really is VERY thorough and if it cleaned all, you may be better off than you think.
Unfortunately Trend- Micro report was no more helpfull to me than you and entering anything listed in their grayware/spyware search came back with: nothing found on any of their data bases. Weird!They were their own numbers. I entered several including Browser Helper Objects.T-M does occassionally find False Positives(erroneous findings).
Neither report showed any of the MOST dangerous things but possibly some BHOs listed may be able to download more or redirect your home or start or search pages.
The following link takes you to a page listing Rogue(bad guys) Programs. If you have any listed: Uninstall!! Add page to Favorites list for easy return while there. Here:
When you installed Adaware SE from Lavasoft (any other is bad stuff: Adware, adwar,addwarrior etc.etc.)& Spybot S&D, did you save the download say on desktop or in "my documents"
as opposed to installing live while still on net? If so they should be clean copies and perhaps at this point you could un-install original blocked copies and try installing, updating & running again. Basically all I've seen BHO,tracking cookies etc should be removable by a combination of both programs.
Roddys suggestion for running a Hijack This is most definative answer and fully correct but may take some time to post and then have them lead you thru.
Again, I suspect you may be clean by now. If you can re- do the Spybot & AdawareSE things and tell them to fix anything they find at end of each scan first noting down what they found.
In passing when you go to net, What is the opening page (Blank, MSN, Yahoo, other?)?
Let us know what you did and what was found.
