    ive gotten 95% of the spyware removed off my computer, but I have one i cant remove. Everytime i do a search on google, the first 2 pages are ad pages, the 3rd page is the first page of real google results, and every page past the 3rd takes u back to the 1st two pages.

    any idea what i need to do to remove this? when the google search is submitted, its sent to:

    http://195.225.177.114/

    which is a copy cat looking site like google. any thoughts?

    Download Hijack This and do a scan. Remove any browser helper objects that aren't legitimate, like Google Toolbar, etc.

    CWShedder and Hijackthis are in need. The new Ad-Aware by Lavasoft I believe has these two built into it but I am not sure because I haven't had scumware for ages.
