I can't urge you enough to boycott the companies that advertise on these trojan bogus search engines (CWS etc.). NOTICE and POST the companies that support this vermin. My most recent trojan that has my system throughly screwed up & I can't get rid of - is "Bullseye Search" . The companies advertising on it are
TARGET ADDIDAS EBAY and ORBITZ

Boycott them, email them, bug the hell out of them. They are criminals and should be put out of business. I have emailed each one and am in the process of terminating my accounts with Ebay/Pay Pal. Please do the same.

E.G. - if Target gets ten emails a day saying that their family would NEVER shop in Target again because their ad trashed their computer... believe me target would drop that form of advertising in a heartbeat. Hit these malware vendors in the pocket!

yip, quite right, but best to use a hosts file, then it will block a lot of these spam sites and add sites. Unfortunately as you say, many reputable companies actually allow these buggers to advertise and spam you when you use thier web-sites, without notifying their customers. It's all down to $, they allow it because these spammers and adders pay these site money to spam thier customers!

Some tools to give you added protection!

to stop reinfection get these two tools, spywareguard and spywareblaster from

www.javacoolsoftware.com

get the hosts file from here.

put it into C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc, for xp and w2k or

C:\windows\ for 95,98 and ME

winpatrol

prevX a new tool, looks like a good one

i would also suggest switching to Mozilla's firefox browser, it's safer, has a built in pop up blocker, blocks cookies and adds.
