HELP! - Hotmail/Spyware problem!!

  cptlaury 09:42 05 Aug 04

I have a problem concerning my hotmail account, as everytime i try to access it, a search engine appears from nowhere, i know that this is a spyware invasion and i have used Adware to retify the problem with no success so far!, I've tried also using Spybot but it freezes up on my computer after verifying 50% of the computer!
Does anyone have any advice of getting rid of this spyware??!! or am I doomed of using hotamil on my personal computer?!

if you type spyware in your search engine you will be able to pick a spyware remover

give spy bot a chance mine hangs during scan and then kicks off again,

there is a range of choice in the downloads section of this site.

when i run spybot, it runs normally until around 50 % when it slows right down or stops completely!, i don't know whether this is normal

i will see which downloads they have on this site

I have tried using Spybot 1.3 which is highly recommended but this has not still solved the problem, does anyone have any advice?

does anyone know how i can manually remove the culprit from my computer soit can be spyware free?
