Hi ,

I have spyware on my computer , when ever I click on a new site adverts come up. I came to experts-exchange to get the answer and found I had to download malwarebytes - I did now it keeps popping up to tell me something has been blocked but I still get the adverts redirection. So Ii paid for Sparktrust and have not seen any good results - I am still getting the redirections! Should I now uninstall iExplorer?

thanks
Alison

reboot.  Go into safe mode (press F8 before windows starts to load).
Run malware bytes in that mode.  
If that doesn't find and kill the adware then try spybot-search-and-destory.
I find that one of those programs has killed almost every malware / adware / spyware that I have come across so far (and that is quite a few)
When you are finished reboot and it will go back into normal mode.

Go to Microsoft.com and download Process Explorer on a working computer. Run Process Explorer on the affected computer.

Look down the left under Explorer to see if there are any alpha-numeric processes. If so, kill the processes and exit Process Explorer but do not restart the computer.

Now run Malwarebytes again and remove malware.

When complete, go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced and Reset Internet Explorer.

Now turn the computer off and then start if back up.

Do it run properly now?

Have you tried resetting Internet Explorer?
Go into Internet Options, click on Advanced tab and click the Reset button. Click Reset. Restart IE and see if the problem has gone.
