I have run "Spy Sweeper" and it has detected and removed an adware titled "WildMain", however it also states that it cannot remove a file titled "midaddle" and that I must remove it manually. I try to do this but I cannot and I receive a message that the file is in use. When I run Spy Sweeper again, it again detects WildMain. I believe these two items are related but I don't know for sure. I also have been getting a lot of pop ups lately and my computer "lags" or seems to be running slower. Are these problems also related to this adware? And how do I get rid of this file and adware program? I am far from any kind of computer expert and would appreciate any help I could get. I have Windows XP. Thanks.
