I know a lot of you have problems with spyware/adware. Here's how to be a more informed computer user and stop spyware from continuing to run on your computer and preventing them from bothering you in the future. happy.gif

From one of my favorite websites, here's Neowin guide to Removing Spyware. May spyware die a horrible, horrible death. thumbsup.gif
