You lost me a bit. Is adshooter the specific piece of spyware causing you problems?

Either way try this.

Download Hijack This! from http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and save it in a newly created folder such as c:\hijack this

Run Hijack this and when it finishes scanning your machine, save the log but DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET

Instead, post the Hijck this! log here and someone will analyse it for you.

I'll look myself, but I'm fairly new to Hijack This! (though with the help of greyknight17 i'm learning it all - nice one Kev!) so when I've finished, I will show the log the somebody more experienced to double check before advising you what to do, so if it takes me a little longer to reply than I normally do, that's why

Can't find anything wrong here? Did you set these or know how they got there? If you dont, I would fix the R0 entry only:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Int ernet Settings,ProxyServer = 196.32.128.250:80
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = c:\WINDOWS\PCHEALTH\HELPCTR\System\panels\blank.ht m


Please download Adaware and install it. Make sure to update it when you run it. Also make sure to customize the settings in Adaware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Restart. Go to the bottom of this message to get the latest version of HijackThis. If the site is down, you can also get it here. Repost a new log file. You may delete the old HijackThis program and replace it with this one.
