Spyware, Viruses, & Security forum

General discussion


My computer now has a bunch of things from "allaboutsearching.com" on it. My homepage constantly changes, and I get a second search bar on the bottom of my screen. I also have a second search bar on the upper part and I have to click on something called "JumpDumbCreative" to close it. I had a problem exactly like this on my previous computer except from "tjgo.com" I've been playing it safe with this computer and somehow I've managed to get "crap" in it again. I've tried AdAware, Spybot search and destroy, and HouseCall with no luck of removing it. Anyone have advice? Thanks!
