Can't delete adware

March 1, 2005 at 15:56:05
Specs: Windows 98, Pentium lll

About a month ago my computer slowed right down. Still don't know why but my Norton antivirus has picked up some adware that it can't delete. Some of the adware I had to delete by going into safe mode the other 9 I can't find to try and delete.

Try these:

1. Spybot Search and Destroy AND
2. Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition (by Lavasoft)

Both can searched for via PCWorld or CNet website or via Google.

Please do run both in tandem as I made the mistake of relying on only one - what one finds the other may not. Keep them updated and run at least once a week.

I had a Malware problem which my AV software did not find and which corrupted my Master Boot Record - running both might have saved me money and grief.....

Along with Spybot S&D and Adaware, I would use Spyware Blaster and another cool freebie I use is WinPatrol

With all those in your corner, you shouldn't have any more problems.
Good Luck
