Try running click here

I've found it very good for seeking out things that others anti-malware programs miss.

Thanks for the advice - the first scan detectyed quite a few, the second software said I was clean. Howver the problem is still happening. I know Google side bar uses photos from my collection and from visted web albums.....and going on past form my teenagers have probably visited this site...however it is not apparent on my computer now - but there is obviously something downloading new photos onto my machine on a daily basis....
