I am receiving ?out of memory? messages when I try to save work in word and Excel.
After reading some of the threads in this forum during the week I realised I have some problems that need help. I asked my grandson to remove his music onto discs and to uninstall Karzza, Morheus and anything else related.
Then I downloaded Ad-aware as advised in the forum. It revealed 644 objects, some were deleted by the program, about 35 items, the others are still there! Things like Dialers, Cydoor, Aureate. Malware, Gator, New.Net, and loads of others I?ve vaguely seen mentioned but smugly thought ?doesn?t effect me? ?I?ve got ZoneAlarm and AVG?.
Having installed Ad-aware I? m not sure what to do with it! It asks me to name the file I want quarantined. Does that mean all 644 objects? Would I be better off reformatting? Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you inadvance to anyone who replies Rita

Thank you VoG. Spybot turned up 13 pages of nasty looking files. It took a while to read through the tutorial however it was a bit easier to grasp. Most of the boxes were already ticked so I just pressed the button shut my eyes and prayed.
This morning I was left with 1 page, half with ticks already in the boxes, I placed ticks in most of the others afer reading where they came from. I am now left with 1 entry for New.net which could not be removed because it was inuse!?. Also about half a page of MySearch Which I think is the Google Search bar. Do you think it safe to leave this? There were no ticks in any of these boxes.
You could try getting rid of this in Safe Mode. To do this reboot then keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen appears. Then select Safe Mode from the menu which will appear. Run Spybot to remove it.
