I have Adaware 6.0 [d/load] that dealls with them, I also have an ad blocker in my Google bar, it's registering 1003 blocked at the moment, haven't you anything like these?, they work well together, instal them now.

Why reformat?
Just get and update
Spybot Search and Destroy
Lavasoft Ad-aware

Because im thinking that if you have ad-aware bad enough to reformat it might go on your cd's when you copy stuff
