Spyware problem

  ukhomerj2003 09:10 26 Nov 09

I have a really annoying spyware issue where my pc "disconnects" from programmes and then comes back every few seconds. I have ran anti spyware, it finds the issue, deletes the problem, then after an hour or so it is back.
Any suggestions please.

Run your antispyware in safe mode (Keep tapping F8 when booting to get safe mode)

Follow rawprawn's instructions.Then run C Cleaner then switch off system restore.Once you reboot switch system restore back on again and see if that makes any difference.

i kept hitting F8 during a reboot and it does not go into safe mode.
I am running Windows XP

How else can i get to dafe mode please?

Try F5

i can now get to the safe mode screen, but no keys are working, allowing me to highlight the safe mode function.

Not sure if you have tried Malwarebytes free or not.
Update it first then run it.
