Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 390x Notebook ?

Laptop has some sort of adware

\015 I bought this laptop second hand and ran fine for awhile,then it started running slower and slower and picked up adware or something similar.Now we cannot connect long enough to run anything to clean it up or run some sort of disc to get rid of the spyware,its really a halfway decent machine and all,what can we try to at least try to connect to the internet long enough to get rid of the problem?My wife and i are lost,any help would be appreciated...thank you.\015

Answers :

There's various amount of anti-spyware tools available. I'm going to link you some:

- Virus Scanners (Free)
AVG AntiVirus 7.5 Free Edition [download]

Anti Spyware solutions:
- Spyware Blaster [download]
\015\012- Spybot: Search & Destroy [download]
- Ad-Aware 2007 [download]
- CCleaner [download]

\015\012You can install some of these. Some of them are scanners some only create a preventive blocklist. Tell me what they find and don't hesitate to ask me how to use them. I'll be glad to help.

Good luck, keep me posted!
