My problem is pretty much like a lot of other ppl on here. I can't do a thing on my computer (while on the internet) without being redirected to an illegitimate search engine. I have purchased and used so many different programs. I have used spysweeper, Ad-Aware, Shredder, Hijack This, and just countless others for apparently no reason!! I have coolwebsearch, super-spider, and some windowws blah blah blah id=all kinds of numbers. I have even had so called technical support only for their suggestions not to work. I have gone into my internet settings numerous times to delete and change things around. This problem just will not go away. It's ridiculous!
I am curious if this has anything to do with my problem....
Months ago I had a different internet service provider from what I currently have. I believe I received my spyware while I was using their service. Well when I go on the ie now on the top bar where it says MIE provided by, it still has my old internet service provider as the provider even though I have deleted it in the internet connection options. When I scan with hijack, etc. I see that the provider is still on my computer even when I can't find it when I do a search on it.
At this point I am truly lost, and completely frustrated!! Does spyware ever get to a computer so bad that it's just completely worthless to even bother anymore???
