Spyware I can't get rid of!!!!!
My computer has been assaulted by "System Defender". (or atleast that's what
all the pop-ups say) It changed my web browser and causes pop-ups constantly.
I ran "Hitman Pro" twice then "Windows Defender" and the pop-ups are still
coming. Is there something else I can do or try? Also is there a good overall
protection I can get that will keep all the offensive "wares" and all the
other stuff away from my computer? Something that monitors 24/7.
First, however, I would appreciate any advice or suggestions that anyone may
have on dealing with my initial issue.
I run Windows XP Home w/SP2.
Thank you in advance.

You could try AVG they have a good spyware program which runs "full
protection" for 30 days. After that you would need to purchase but you can
run scans for free.

Is your site still filled with that nasty pornographic material you so
proudly claim to have created?

Why would anyone want to download something from your filthy site?
