~The Parasite Test Online: Click on this link (opens in a new window), this will launch the parasite test (javascript), then read the results below detection script. If your computer is infected they will tell you how to uninstall the parasite.

Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and download the latest upgrades and security patches for Windows systems. Microsoft finally added a popup-killer into his service pack 2 for windows XP, you should definitely install it.

It then lists the results and offers to remove or quarantine the components. The program detects a wide range of adware/spyware related issues and can be updated with the latest signatures via the built-in update utility. The free version is strictly a scanner, and does not provide any real-time pro
