Adaware most likely remove a "Layered Service Provider" which some MALWARE had installed.
Look up LSPFIX with http://www.google.com on how to fix that.
Good to read you've found this bad stuff...
I am running Windows 2000 and was previously using baden spysweeper to remove adware etc. My brother suggested using Lavasofts' ad-aware which I downloaded.
In the short space of time when spysweeper wasn't running (or it missed them) ad-aware 6 found 78 adware/spyware items, then when run again found 6 then 2 - I quarantined all of them and found Outlook express couldn't find server and IE 6 wouldn't display anything - could not find server. I restored the last 2 quarantined items sort of worked, then previous 6 and then all of them. New-dot.net seemed to be the main problem - the last to remove. Is this something MS needs to run (I've heard there is spyware in IE6)?
Any help would be welcomed.
