Default Adware/Spyware Removal

I've had a little "friend" on my PC for some time now.

The little bugger fetches pop-ups every minute or so, topical to what I'm doing at that moment. I suspect he is also responsible for altering my settings so that Explorer search button goes to the same ad board every time. I can also no longer designate my homepage in "internet options" under Tools (it always defaults back to MSN Home Search after a bit).

Does anyone know how to purge the little parasite?

I've tried Adaware 6 and even downloaded a Norton trial version (with it's own annoyances). I have Pop-Up Stopper installed, but it doesn't stop these ones.

Any suggestions?


Just 1 month to go until the "Cruise Cynic Mystery Cruise" ... January 2008
