Sometimes, despite your best efforts, insidious adware burrows into your 
computer and won't come out. It can hijack your home page, add an unwanted 
toolbar to your browser, pop up ads, or even track your every movement for 
commercial gain. You should always try running standard adware-removal programs 
such as Ad-aware and Spybot - Search &amp; Destroy first, but when they can't 
keep the nasties at bay, HijackThis digs deep.</font></td></tr></tbody>
