Ok guys...this one is tricky. My fiance was using my computer the other night before she went back to school and the next morning I was having all of these spyware problems. She was doing some reasearch for her veterinary medicine course at her college and she must have inadvertently gotten this crap installed on my computer.
I use Spybot S&D, but that didn't fix this particular problem at all.
It seems to have nullified ALL of my search engines. In other words if I type something into it all I get is a generic page from whatever search engine i'm using to the companies that they allow advertise on their seach engines, like the 2020 Toolbar and crap.
Not having a search engine is a PROBLEM. I wouldn't be posting this here if I could get to a computer help message board, but since I can't search it i'm out of luck. A lot of you guys are pretty savy with the programs and stuff...so i'm hoping you guys can help. I only build computers.
Here is the picture:
As you can see it highlights targetwords. What determines what gets highlighted, must be something in the spyware. As you can see it highlighted MUSIC and CAR on this forum. I had the cursor over music and notice how it links to a search engine? How the heck to I get rid of this crap so I can use my old search engines and stop getting all of these annoying highlights? It also creates a bunch of pop-ups, but since I use the google popup blocker all is well with that.
Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated. Thanks guys.
