Default HELP!... Spyware!! :'(

Hey People!
I need some help!
i've got a massive amount of spyware on my computer.
And it just doesn't seem to go away.
i've tried Spyware Doctor and Ad-Adware and it still hasn't stopped
i even used start>run "msconfig" to stop the programs from starting
and the ads still appear!!
can anyone help me... to kill off the spyware... from the roots!
i heard theres ways of using the registry to kill the spyware off?

Many Thanks
xlnc

before you do anything drastic, you can try defraging ur comp not that that would solve the problem, or a disk clean up. try using a virus scan, but i have the same problem, its just an internet thing. wut do you use mozilla? or IE?

ok well just to let you kno IE sucks, and there is a new 7.0 version out. but anyway download mozilla fire fox from http://www.mozilla.org/ and you will have much less problems, but still its the internet, and you will always have that problem. everyone does. even me with windows firewall, my routers firewall, mcaffes firewall, and i use mcaffe virus scan, ad-ware se personal, and spybot.

Well ... first off if you don't have one, get a decent firewall, second download spybot s&d and then scan and immunise your whole computer, third get microsoft anti-spyware and then also do a scan there, do a third one with ad-aware, and then a fourth one with avg anti-virus ... make sure all your definitions are up to date
Also download ccleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com) to delete your temporary files just in case anything is hidden in there, it can also clear up some of your registry

ccleaner does the exact same thing as a disk clean up. incase xlnc does kno. you do a disk clean up by goin to start, all programs, accessories, system tools, and then disk clean up.
