    Hi there
    I have been running through the usual scans for virus' and adware etc. I ran
    spybot and ad-aware. spybot came up with a list of 6 adware infections and
    deleted 1, saying the others were manual deletions.
    I ran it again in safe mode and it came up with 7 totally different adware
    infections, but none of the original 6.
    Whats going on? I also cannot automatically delete these 7 new adwares.
    I have run the live update before scanning in safe mode and still no
    success.
    Something fishy is definately afoot.
    Regards
    Debbie
