Need some help

Ok guys lately my pc has been running really slow so I start looking into it and turns out it has a shit load of spy ware on it. I have done all the Ad ware stuff and highjack this but nothing helps. Adware removed 130 bad files but that still didn't do shit for me. It also told me I have several parasites on my system what ever that means. I know it aint good but how do I get rid of the shit. My CPU usage is at 100% with over 30 processes running to which I have no clue what they are. My question is do yall think I can fix this by downloading stuff from off line or do I need to just break down and buy some good software to take care for the problem. Or worse yet do I need to take my pc in or have someone come out and take a look at it cause I suck at computers. Any ideas or suggestions to what I need would be awesome.

Do you run a current and updated antivirus?

Worst case wipe and reload the pc and load pop up and spyware blockers ASAP.

Ouch! Sounds like you have serious issues! Keep running the adaware over and over, get a antivirus software. If that doesn't work, you may have to re-format the PC.

do msconfig and remove everything in the startup. then grab it usually removes all the spyware that adaware doesnt get. probably install it then update it, reboot your pc into safemode then run the program. also antivirus software wouldnt hurt either. you will notice tons of BS exe files running when u look in your task manager if you dont see them disappear when u run spybot and what not then manually delete them. most of the ones that run and stop shit from working are always listed in your c:\windows\prefetch folder
