    try downloading some freeware. good software that i use is:
    Spy Sweeper
    SpyBot
    Ad-aware

    Look on http://www.download.com sure that they will have it!!

    if not search for it on google, and get it straight from creater.

    the other thing that we found in the PC Shop where i work is virus' that turn off all antivirus. the only solution is to put the HDD into another machine and scan it!!! this could be your problem. if one of the process that are running is one of these clever virus'

    try to boot up in safe mode and run a virus scan!!!, and also run the spy ware progs again, see if because of something running they are not working correctly. although some may not run in safe mode.

    yeah try them, but if they don't work then don't worry it is cos there are certain elements of windows that do not start when in safe mde...these elements some of the scanners need...have fun at school, post back the results when you do it ok!!!
