Internet Privacy option and Spyware

  User-F34A26F4-1425-40D7-B1FD868FB17165AD 13:48 13 Dec 2008

Hello,please can someone give me some advice. I went into tools then internet option and into privacy tab - my setting was medium and I have turned this up to high should I have done this or should I leave it to medium? I am currently in the process of running superanitspyware as my computer has been running slow and everytime I log onto the net I keep getting ads popping up which states when they do that the ads are from browsing advisor. As you can imagine its very frustrating so I am hoping this programme will solve the problem.
Thanking you in advance for any help you can give.

Return your Privacy setting to Medium. Download and run click here both in Clean and registry modes.
Then as an added precaution, download, update and run Malwarebytes
click here
Let us know the result.

you may find you have "browsing advisor" in your program files but not in add/remove. if so delete it from your program files

Thank you both but the problem is now resolved since I have completed the scan with the spyware.
Thanks again.
