OK, any idea how to remove Spykiller.  Evidently the download was to scan only, to eliminate the adware I have to purchase Spykiller, don't want to do that.  I went to remove programs in the Control panels and removed it, but it is still there.  It no longer shows up in the Add/Remove program list, but it is still on my computer and running.  Any ideas.

I've got same problem with Spykiller. Running it on
Windows 95B with I.E. vers. 4.01  When I tried to uninstall
it, it took 60 .dll files with it! Ruined several programs
including my isp software!  Norton Utilities was able to
find and fix all of these problems  after I reinstalled
Spykiller.  Can anyone tell me how to keep this program
from loading when I start up the computer similar to the
msconfig used with Windows XP?  I thought this was the
answer but can't find msconfig in 95b. Also what other
steps must be executed to keep it from running.  I'm sure
this is easier than reformating the hard drive! And to think
Tech TV recommended this thing!

I've never used Spykiller, but it is highly NOT recommended

Have you tried a couple of suggestions from their site
I'll look some more
http://mycusthelp.com/SPYKILLER/

You could also try This Startup control App
http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
I would recommend that you try getting rid of it first

It may help, if your having troubles with spyware to post a Hijackthis
log....
Hijackthis---Important---Create a permanent
folder
EG---- Open MyDocuments----Right click an empty spot and select NEW---Folder----Name the new folder HJT ---this is where you will want to save Hijackthis too and backups will be stored there.

I use a couple of other Spyware Removers that are totally free
