    Default Spyware

    Completely unrelated....but does anyone have experience removing spyware/adware?

    I keep getting these popups saying 'your computer is infected' etc and my homepage keeps getting changed to a site called 'about:blank'.

    I have downloaded and run some free removal programs and they remove the spyware but it always comes back.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    CK

    adware is really good, just run it maybe once every couple of weeks and youre spyware free.
