Hi mate, first of all WELCOME TO MYTECHSUPPORT.CA and feel free to post your problems and ask questions, people here will help you for sure.

Second... calm down, it's not that bad, but your system is full of spyware as I can see.  Here are some basic steps you have to follow when you encounter similar spyware problems.

Download Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy, update them to the lastest definitions and do a full system scan. With these 2 apps you can get rid of those toolbars and unwanted homepages Tongue Go http://www.mytechsupport.ca/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=42&topic=6782 for more detailed steps.

Then, download HiJackThis and post your logfile here, if you have problems about HiJackThis or any questions (or perhaps you don't know what is it), just ask Grin

Hope this helps. Good Luck, by the way, post your result.

Ok... information and download HiJackThis http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Popup-Ad-Spyware-Blockers/HijackThis.shtml

All it does, is scan your computer and then there's an option which lets you save a log file (imp. do not fix problems).  Then all you have to do is uploading the logfile (notepad file) here, and post it in the "Security & Viruses" forum.  Afterwards, mytechsupport.ca will reply, telling you what you have to do step by step.

Just wondering about the problem.  It's important for you to run an antivirus software, there are excellent freeware antivirus software around.  If you don't have one tell me and I will suggest you some free AV apps. It's important if you have one to perform a full system scan.
