Very odd.

My first reply supplied a link about some tools to make sure your machine was free of pests. If you don't read supplied links, I fear this could take a very long time.

Please try those tools and be... parasite free.

One tool down.

In reply to: spybot

In my Antiparasite Suite post, a lament is that so far there has not been just "one tool that does it all."

Today we find that a collection of tools works best. Adaware will find what Spybot missed. Cwshredder targets that pest. And Housecall has found trojans or other pests that your antivirus missed.

Just like seeing a doctor, you want the second, third, fourth and so on opinions.

The collection is well worn by members here.

Bob gave you some very good advice and as he said if your not reading the links offered it is going to be a long hot summer. In all probability you have Pests of one or sort or another and until these are REMOVED your problems can only get worse.
