Spyware problem, AdAware won't run

Specs: XP Pro, 1.2
Good afternoon,

I was looking for some help with a particular problem I've been having. My computer seems to have a terrible Spyware problem. I ran Spybot S&D, but AdAware won't run all the way through without freezing.

My computer won't stay up long enough for me to get online. It just lags terribly and then blue screens.

I am on a different computer now, but I am still at a loss for what I can do to fix my computer.

Will I have to reformat my harddrive?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

If you are getting the blue screen I would definatly format it. Do you have anti-virus software running? If so try to update it as it may be a virus not spyware. However you you manage to "remove" it if it is bad enough to give you a blue screen it would be best to format it.

Save all your docs to a disk and when you format the pc put anti-virus on put the disk in and scan that to make sure nothing has transfered!
