Try it in safe mode, most scanners should be run in safe mode anyway. If you post a hijackthis log here, it'd be a lot easier to help you.

I beg to differ on SpySweeper. As a tool used with others scanners, it's a great program and finds objects well after ad-aware, MS Anti-spyware and spybot have "done their jobs".

ok thank you i did just that and it fixed the issue must be something that was open that caused it to freeze. well i wasnt that infected as i thought i would be . had only 6 more than adaware would detect. thanks again. go spysweeper!

Consider installing Spyware Blaster to help keep your system clean, excellent program, uses NO resources (other than hard drive space)....google it.

Glad you're working again! :)
