Spyware Problem...
Evening all,

I decided to run netstat, and noticed a lot of unusal connections so I ran spyware and of course it cleaned them up, but they coming back after a short period.

I am using ad-aware 2007 to scan and delete them, and I have a anti-virus running.

I have windows firewall turned on as well.

Any ideas on how they keep coming back?

Re: Spyware Problem...
try Spybot or the AVG free spyware. Ad-Aware pretty much stinks to be honest.

Re: Spyware Problem...
See if you can run the scans in windows safe mode. I use superantispyware pro and I've never had a problem with spyware. I think the free home version only lacks the auto scheduling features so its not a bad deal:)
