Here are a few steps....

Your situation most likely due to Spyware\Adware\Malware that was installed when you took advantage of one of those 'Free On-Line Scans'.

Try emptying your Internet Cache*.

Here are excellent free tools for removing spyware, malware and adware:

Ad-Aware:

Spybot Search & Destroy:

CWShredder:
http://tinyurl.com/38wazl

X-Cleaner Micro:

All of these can and should be run in safe mode for clean-up to be most effective.

I would also use this tool: RootKitRevealer (http://tinyurl.com/y3hgq9) or this new free one from McAfee (http://tinyurl.com/2v6n8x).

If the issue remains, I recommend you download and run HiJackThis (http://tinyurl.com/b9h3s) and post the log file it creates in one of the many forums dedicated for that purpose. I recommend that you post your HiJackThis log where there are many people who specialize in working with them. Try here: http://tinyurl.com/2nxzqt
You'll have to create a login but I think you'll find it to be the easiest and best way to resolve your issue.

Additionally, here is a good source for advice: http://aumha.org/a/quickfix.htm

When you finally get everything cleaned up and running smooth, here are great tools to help you avoid getting that garbage again:

SpywareBlaster:

SpywareGuard:

and to quickly clean out the places where their installers usually hide before you shut down or reboot - ATF-Cleaner:

Good Luck


* To empty the Internet Cache - if you are using IE7, open to a browser window, click on Tools, select Internet Options, in the Browsing History section click on Delete and then in the next menu click on Temporary Internet Files 'Delete Files.'
If you are using IE6, click on Tools, select Internet Options and then under Temporary Internet Files click on the Delete Files button.

First - you have to be able to spell it correctly !!...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to how do i remove rotator ...

There isn't an anti-spyware package on the planet that'll find anything if it's incorrectly spelled out.

rotator.adjuggeler = rotator.adjuggler

Note:
This is your 4th post, mumbling inanely about some obscure filetype, and you have yet to mention anything about having run Trend Micro HijackThis.

An alternative method

Turn off System Restore
<br><br>
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
<br>
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe
<br><br>

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.<br>
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.<br>
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.<br>
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.<br>
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.<br>
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.<br>
<br>
Just to be on the safe side when you finish do an online scan with Bitdefender.

<br><br>
Get yourself a good Antivirus program. I have been using Avast which is free for home use, you only have to register it.
<br><br>
Remember to turn on System Restore when you have finished cleaning.
