My PC got affected with spyware and I almost cleared my system with lavaoft ad-aware software. Looks like still I am having syware like SHOPNAV. This was not detected by lavasoft.
Example: When I click on kids website, it is showing SHOPNAV and search results. So how can I delete this? I try doing it in regedit. But when I get regedit screen, the screen is dis-appearing within 30seconds. So I am unable to do regedit. Is there any other way I can clear my PC?

I had this issue too. I downloaded the free Noadware software or you can download any other spyware software remover also. Do you NOT register or pay for any of these items. Just use the scan feature. It will scan your harddrive and list the "dangerous" files/folders. You will have the option of paying to have it automatically remove but why when you can do it yourself. Manually go through each listed file/folders the spyware remover finds and delete them. Don't delete any software you know you installed (for example, Kazaa).
