Lambo, What Have You Tried?

Have you used any spyware tools to check for spyware? Be sure to try ALL of the free tools at the links below. Download, install, update, then run them:

Tried EVERYTHING I know of!

I actually use Spy Sweeper with scheduled scans, plus I use Ad-Aware and SpyBot once a week as well. So I don't think it is spyware. As for Java, how do I know if it is installed? There was a listing under Tools called "Sun Java Console" but when I click it, IE crashes just like those websites?!?
