    Hi there,

    I have a bad case of adware on my laptop.

    I cant find any unknown software in my programs, Ive cleared and reset my internet browsers.

    Ive tried adware cleaner which only works brefly, then the adware comes back.

    Ive been using cc cleaner too.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried MalwareBytes or SpyBot?

    Also, check out this guide: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407

    If all else fails you can try HijackThis. You need to know what you're doing though. You should be able to find instructions for that on MajorGeeks too.

    This will fix your troubles http://download.cnet.com/AdwCleaner/3000-7786_4-75851221.html

    I remeber about 6 months ago I installed one of my ppd files by accident :)

    I could not get it off for nothing, I deleted all recent files and I have malwarebytes.

    The software I linked to found the adware tho. Its pretty damn good.

    OP, go with HitmanPro - it's free to use for a few days.

    Scan your PC with

    • HitmanPro
    • Malwarebytes
    • SpyBot

    But when scanning disconnect your PC from the Internet.

    The best tool for this job:
    • Malwarebytes Anti Malware
    • Spybot Search & Destroy
    • AdAware

    Get one of these tools and they will do the job for you!

    Op run cloud cleaners as they can usually find/run even when the whole top is burning down.

    Run: Active panda cleaner followed by hitman pro
