I have just been hit with this blighter. I did not request it and certainly don't want it. I have tried to uninstal it, but it keeps coming back. I have run Adaware and Spybot S & D, to no avail. Another programme was also installed - AdDestroyer, this sees Ad Aware as a threat and identifies it as spyware. Another programme, TV Media is also installed and this just will no go. I cannot delete it (protected), Add Remove Programs doesn't touch it. It looks as if I need to reformat, unless someone out there knows any solutions.

Was I protected? Well I am on a network, which is protected by a regularly updated hardware firewall (Watch Guard), Sophos Anti virus, with all the bells and whistles. I don't know what else I could have dome. For goodness' sake, I'm supposed to be the network administrator - I don't mess about on the Internet at work!
