Stupid spyware... my task bar kept freezing up, until I get a pop up ad, for some really weird reason O_o

ARGH STUPID RETARDED SOLICITORS! Can't even get away from 'em online ;x

Sorry I feel like venting, it's been pissing me off for the past 2 1/2 hours...

Edit 2- Marn fixed me :O (99% sure anyways >.>)

Personally, I like using Adsubtract. It is pretty well featured and not too spendy. http://www.adsubtract.com

I just use regedit and manually sniff out all those pesky browser hijacker. I don't trust those ad-aware enough to use em. Anything that is free will always have some hidden catch.

or you can open up your task manager, and list every process running.. then look up what each process does, and track it down that way.. lots of ways to catch the spyware shit without adding more to your system
