    What are the best programs out there to remove spyware from my computer? I've just uninstalled Kazaa after a many failed attempts and my computer started acting funny. I was left with a few spyware programs, Newdot being one, but I am running "Ad-Aware" and I think I've deleted most of them.

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I use Ad-Aware also. It seems to do a good enough job.

    yes, definitely adaware. i believe there's a kazaa-lite out there...look it up as I don't believe it has any spyware. it comes with a dummy cd_clint.dll file. to stop some of the popups, you can download a hosts file from a variety of sources that redirect requests for ad pages to the ozone.
