    i recently visited a site to download some torrents, and ever since then my computer has gone haywire with popups and just general slow behavior. I have run spybot, avg, and ad-aware and have deleted a ton of shit that i assume came from this site.

    however i still have an awful popup problem. every couple of minutes i get one from internet explorer with random crap. my computer has never had this problem until i came upon that website, so i know it had to be from something there.

    does anyone know of any better programs to weed out some of the crap that has obviously gotten on my computer? or anyone had a similar problem from a torrent site?

    Do you happen to have some things warning you of a virus in the system tray, hijacked start page or what?

    You have spyware, browser hijackers, etc.
