I have some sort of spyware/trojan on my comp. Some stupid porn site (I assume its porn, I never let it load the sites it wants to) keeps trying to overtake me when I look at Hotmail and Supercars.net. Its slowly starting to affect more and more sites, but thankfully not FF yet. It auto-links to itself, so I am not able to look at hotmail, therefore check my email, from my own computer.

I've installed Lavasoft Ad-Aware, run it 10 times, rememved a few hundred items, but the sh*t is still there. Normally I wouldn't be asking how to fix this, I'd just format, but I'd rather not, I formatted a few months ago and don't really want to again. Downloading all those drivers with 56k is a PITA. Anyone got any suggestions? Oh, and in case you need to know, the Operating System is Microsoft Windows ME and I use Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1.
I had a problem like that as well. One of dads mates recommended using the freeware program zonealarm from www.zonelabs.com It worked well and got rid of everything. It gets rid of everything and puts up a firewall which stops you from using p2p file sharing programs.
After the problem was gone I uninstalled it and the computer is still fine.
