How can I stop Double click from reappearing?


Hello, I use spyware blaster and ad aware. I use Firefox. Every time I
run them these are back:

AdRevolver
Advertising.com
AvenueA.Inc
DoubleClick
HistLink
MediaPlex
Statcounter
Zedo

How can I stop them from getting put on my computer in the first
place?

Thanks
Sarah

You need to clean up your computer more thoroughly. Go through these
general malware removal steps systematically:

You probably won't need to do them all but you should definitely go
through the prep work first.

You can use a modified HOSTS file
This MVPS HOSTS file is a free download from:
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

It would be a good idea to make a backup of your existing HOSTS file
(copy/paste).
