i run adaware or spybot (unsure of which, as i have both, and i don't want to run them again to find out which one) and it tells me it must reboot and run at startup to remove certain spyware. I do this, and when i select remove spyware (after rebooting) it displays "INCORRECT PARAMETERS" and locks up the system... ***....
If someone has another spyware removal tool i should try or anything that can help in the next half hour, please let me know.
BTW this problem is not with my comp... it's a customers... here are the specs

Win98
Intel P!!! 600MHz
192 megs of sdram
20gb HDD
DVD-ROM
56k modem
NVidia TNT2 128-bit 8MB graphics

You need to restart and run it in safe mode.........the spyware you have is running in the background causing your lock up..........safe mode scan will fix this

well, i went through safemod, and it got me nowhere... the program was adaware. i saved a list of the files that it could not remove and removed them manually from DOS. now i have no spyware, according to ad-aware. thx guys
