Errr Ad-Aware is not a virus. It's a spyware remover. So what is ad-aware virus? If you go to all these kind of places then be prepared to get all kind of trojans.

Ad-aware is good but it's only a spyware remover and does not offer realtime protection against spywares. What you need is a combination of two softwares. Go to www.snapfiles.com to download spyware blaster. This software gives realtime protection against spywares. After u have spyware blaster in your system, use ad-aware to supplement it. Run ad-aware weekly to check if you blaster is working fine. I use it and 95% of the time, the spywares don't get thru. Of course, nothing is 100% safe, that's why ad-aware does the job of removing them should any of them breach your blaster's defence.

SOrry, OT abit.

I'm currently using SPYBOT and LAVASOFT AD-WARE , but still ... I cant remove all the gunk from my computer. There is this tool bar that pops up and I cannot close it (the close button will not work) when I use IE.

Any other more powerful spyware scanner ?

some such toolbars can be uninstall from control panel add/remove programs. have you tried?
these kind of toolbars are a diff category from spywares. spywares make use of your bandwidth to earn $$$ for them. such toolbars make use of your PC to visit sites to gain ad clicks, also to help them to earn $$$. so they function differently.

there are far too many such junks and i think its a bit hard to these spyware removers to keep track.

Yea, use Kaaza Lite instead of Kaaza. The newer version of Kaaza Lite I last remember is Kaaza Lite Resurrection... neitherway, Kaaza lite will still open the backdoor for ad-ware/spyware to penetrate your PC...

I use Bit Torrent instead... no, not the original bit torrent client, use BitComet client instead to download torrent files instead... :D
