    You can try restoring older settings or dfu mode. If not you might have to wipe your drive.

    Check if it's running under processes.

    Task Manager. Run a REGEDIT scan. Easiest solution? Re-install Windows or something.

    Just get Microsoft Security Essentials

    Works for XP,Vista,And Win7.

    It got rid of every spyware (adware) I had from some stupid program called iFunBox (at least I believe thats what gave me all that stupid crap).

    Which scanners have you used already? That would be helpful.

    Yes I do know that.

    Also once I installed it onto my computer I got spyware and trojans.

    Luckly AVG (which I don't use anymore cause it wouldn't remove the viruses it would just block them) detected them.

    For the spyware a program called Antivir Solution Pro (google for details) was spamming my computer.

    I could be wrong that iFunbox wasn't what caused it but I sure suspect it was.

    It could've been the website I got it from but I could care less now because my computer is virus free

    Thank Microsoft Security Essentials...it actually removes the virus unlike AVG...
