Have a problem with spyware/malware. When I start up there is a red overlay to the desk top indicating an advert for RazSpyware. Run Spybot and McAfee standalone Anti spyware with latest update with no success. Cannot do system restore as the restore points have been removed. Any suggestions?

Well that did not work.

Has anyone any other suggestions short of reformating my hard drive and rebuilding. I am not too keen on doing this

Dear Rawprawn,

Tried lots of things that ended up with me getting Spyware Doctor. Run the programme and it appears to have solved the problem. Probably caused lots of others that I haven't found yet. Sorry just being my usual pessemistic self concerning computers.
