If I type anything into the address bar or even a search engine all I get if adult web pages and adverts I have tried adaware to no affect. The operating system is windows 98se and I have blueyonder broadband. When it goes to the adult pages at the very top of the screen it shows XXX explorer.
I think you might need more than Ad-Aware. Try using Spybot Search & Destroy & a good AV prog. If you are having difficulty accessing the web these progs are on the mag cover disc if you are a subscriber.
