I was visiting my mom the other day and I checked out her computer. It was loaded with all kinds of spyware, as she likes the free scfeensavers, coupons, recipes, and other carp** that is given away on carp** sites. (Note: mom is a BIG TIME beginner computer user!).
I run all the basics to clean up her system (AdAware, SPybotSD, clean cache). I delete a bunch of carp** she has installed (such as the likes of weatherbug) and reboot.
The only problem she still has is whenever she is typing out an email she hits the space button or the period (.) it opens up her start menu. At first I thought it was hotkeys, but I disabled them and it didn't help.
Any ideas? WHat other info do you need to know? Thanks in advance!
