    I got something annoying

    I keep getting this stupid ad appearing and I don't know how to get rid of it. I run ad aware and it still comes up. How would I go about finding where this is on my computer and getting rid of it.

    well if u have downloaded messenger plus u would need to uninstall the advertisment prgam it comes with, look it up in ur add remove programs in the control panel, and remove messenger plus, then it will ask if u want to remmove messenger plus, or just the advertisement program, then u will have to follow the steps to uninstall it, but thats only if u downloaded the messenger plus prgram, cuz thats wat just happened to me 5 minutes ago lol ^ ^

    Try running the Microsoft Spyware Removal Tool Beta, as it catches stuff that ad-aware misses...

    hmmm it's probably one of those that has installed a prefetch file into your I386 folder, that file will keep helping it respawn in your computer over and over again kind of like Hassun's bad humor

    I recommend running an AdAware scan and a spybot scan together.

    Or just dl hitmanpro and it does them for you.

    Format C.

    Seriously though, if ad-ware and spy-ware don't work it's time to back up and reformat.
