    adaware and spybot are both pretty good...you can download them on download.com...i don't know about that particular bot, but it may work. you have virus protection?

    Re: Spyware removal help!

    I would recommend both Adaware and Spybot, and I would also Google the exact name of the spyware and seek specific removal instructions.

    Re: Spyware removal help!

    If you can download from you other computer I would recommend SuperAnti Spyware. I think the pro version has a fifteen day trial. From looking around it looked like people were able to remove it with this program. Good luck!

    Do you have a network at home? Download the anti spyware installer on your desktop and ftp it to your laptop.

    Can I burn it to a disk or something?

    The best anti-spyware is abstinence. Stay off the porn sites.

    Re: Spyware removal help!

    I second using Adaware and Spybot S&D. If you want a thorough step-by-step process to removing spyware, I've had success with the guide found here. Be sure you know what you're doing if you follow this guide, however, as some steps can cause issues if used improperly.
