Adware

Post by mattvfr on 20th April 2009, 12:55 pm

hi my fiancee has been on either frostwire or livewire against my opinion, i only use my pc to chat to friends on facebook and now i keep getting new tabs open up advertising junk and phishing sites.

its really annoying me i've tried windows defender,norton 360 and avast to try and find the options it has applied to my browser settings but i'm having no luck, i've considered system restore but my last restore point has been saved after she went on to these sites.

is there a spyware that will detect adware from these site or am i gonna have to reinstall the lot?

hope you can give me some advice on this thankyou
