i've got some stubborn adware on my pc. i run spybot, it's listed as "coolwwwedit". it's firmly attached to my registry. spybot can get rid of most of it, but not all. so it keeps coming back. i look for the offending bit in regedit, and it's not there.
i run norton professional, and it finds the adware "iefeats" and "winshow". it can't get rid of the problem. just like with the bits spybot finds, i can't find them to remove them either.
basically, they are really, really annoying. my homepage is redirected, sex sites are added to my favorites list, and of course there are popups. oh, and there's also this weird bit where certain words on websites become links to 'goto:whatever the word is'.
i'm about ready to pull out my hair.
what are your suggestions?
