Hi, things keep downloading onto my computer, even when im not on any sites, but still online. My home page keeps changing, even after i change it back through tools then internet options, it automaically changes back.
something called trqutyiblup is at the top of my internet explorer menu. i can uncheck the bar, but cant delete it from my computer. i have searched for the name but it comes up with no results.
i have got Spybot but that doesnt come up with much.

What should i do?

Download and install them both. Then run a scan with Spybot search and destroy. Spyware blaster should then stop more spyware from downloading. Run a scan once a week with search and destroy, just to remove any odd program that spyblaster might miss. Don't whatever you do install Kazaa

Kazaa lite may be better in itself but you are still exposing your machine to just as many nasties by using it and linking to other machines that may not have the lite version. All these undesirables are insidious and determined to get a hold in your computer. Don't let them - don't use either!
