My computer is full of webpage hijackers and all sorts of nasty bots that are being repeatedly detected and erased by spybot, only to reappear in every scan. It’s to the point that I can’t even open my hotmail account. I read there’s a way to get rid of hijackers by resetting the internet options, but the viruses are denying me access to even that. I am getting very frustrated by the whole thing.
What can I do short of chucking my laptop in the garbage and starting over with a new one?
