    I thought I could get by with the little I know about computers, but I'm wrong.

    Apparently the massive amounts of tentacle and/or ladyboy porn I look at has given my computer super aids or something along those lines.

    One particularly pesky thing has been "Awola"....a fake spyware detector. A real pain in the ass to remove, despite not falling for the fake windows popups.


    Anyway, I wanted to know what everyone recommends as far as:

    1. Good, free tools for spyware/adware detection.
    2. Intervals for scanning. Right now I have my spyware set to autoscan every sunday at 4 AM, but I guess that's not enough.
    3. Any other advice to avoid this in the future....other than to stop looking at my precious, precious porn.


    Thanks

    There are a lot of sites that have virus/malware removal guides.

    That one seems the most comprehensive and easy to follow of the ones that I have seen.
