spyware help!

I downloaded Noadware and removed a bunch of crap from my computer. But this junk is still here!! Well the most annoying one anyway. I cannot get my browser to stay on Hotmail. It keeps bringing up some damn search page, and a bunch of popups for spyware detectors. Somthing fishy about that if ou ask me. I have attached a print screen of my system processes. Can someone help me figure this out, puhleez?!?! Thanx a bunches!!!

first you need to do a search and find spybot search and destroy, and then CWshredder....d/l both of those and run it.......after that you will probably have to d/l hijackthis adn have someone on here show you wnat to delete....

Do it the easy way. Sort that list by process name (click the process tab) and print it. Make a new user on your computer, log in and sort the procees list, compare the two.

I use Adaware and I've heard good things about Spybot. Both are free and work great.
Do you have Zonealarm? If not, download the free version. It will ask if you want something to access the internet, so if you recognize the program that is asking to go out, let it. If not, tell it NO and see if everything still works.
Once you know what programs you want to access the internet, click the little box that says "Always allow this program access" or something like that, and it won't ask again for that program.

Close all other programs on your computer, go back into task manager. Any that are started by you are suspect, like that hphmr08 or whatever the hell it is???

haven't had a pop up in a year or two with this:

spybot search and destroy
adaware
zone alarm security suite (has embedded antivirus protection)
www.zonelabs.com

download the 15 trial version

go to www.freeserials.com search for the latest edition of zone alarm (or any other software for that matter) and enjoy no pop ups or spyware free for ever!!

Thumbs up

Another vote for CW Shredder. I had that exact same problem on my computer about 6 months ago. It set the homepage to some weird search page and put a weird URL in the address box. I downloaded the program and ran it and haven't had a problem since.

I've used Spybot and Adaware for the last two years but recently switched to Spy Sweeper. I cannot complain about any of the programs but Spy Sweeper seems to be the most thorough. It finds items that the other two do not.
