Think I got some spyware/adware

Discussion in 'Support' started by Deleted member 53, May 15, 2008.

  1. I was browsing the TUF forum and my browser kept redirecting to ask and some sort of search query. I have windows defender but no other spyware protection. I thought maybe it was an ad on the page or something.

    Also, when I browse from work quite often the forum will load a new page and minimize and bring up whichever word document I have open. I think it's probably down to IE and a setting that is triggered due to the ads.

    Anyone experienced something similar?

    Can you suggest a good free spyware scanner?

    Get adaware and try that, and if it identifies the name of the spyware let us know.

    you can get Ad-Aware at for free.

    Thank you,
