Best Adware remover/blocker?
Well since I let my brother use my laptop there has been alot of adware on it, every now and then a pop up for an advertisement will appear and it's buggin' me. That and my pc will stop cold sometimes and ask me if I want to stop a script. I have CCleaner and avast! Antivirus installed on my computer and it still persists.

I would appreciate any help.

I'd first try malwarebytes antimalware (on safe mode) and/or spybot

RE: Best Adware remover/blocker?
yeh i would have suggested malware bytes also, very good tool. I'm considering buying it as it's only £20 for a lifetime license and it's saved my life many a time ;p If he has any google redirects (which seem to be common with stuff like this), use the ESET Online Scanner, it takes a while but it gets rid Smile

RE: Best Adware remover/blocker?
I used ESET and then removed it after the free removal. I then removed AVG because I thought it was conflicting with Malwarebytes and avast antivirus; after I did that mozilla firefox had its homepage set to websearch dot youwill find. Searching google many articles stated that it was a redirection type of spyware so I removed it from the control panel. It's still up Sad

The main thing I'm trying to achieve through all of this is to play youtube videos, I have never had a problem loading a video on youtube but now it stops like every 8-10 seconds.

hmm. do you have a process called iehlpr.exe or something? or a directory on the root of your C drive called "Temporary"? if so, kill the task and delete that folder.

I have a folder called Temp which has 2 more folders inside, one says Boot, the other Recovery. Then some more files in the temp folder like CheetahLog.txt , AskCD1 , detect.log seems pretty random to me. But after I turned off my modem/router(?) for a few minutes and turned it back on, my internet speed is finally back to normal. Weird.

Temp folder is, temp folder, it should not have any persistent data.

So it's okay to delete it's contents?

Perhaps HiJackThis will help you a bit removing hooks and whatnot from spyware, supposing you can tell which are the odd ones out and which aren't. If you want, paste a log of the results and i can tell you which ones are unwelcome.
