Re: spyware

Hi there,
Windows will not let you delete a program that is currently running.
That is one reason spyware is hard to get rid of since it is always running 
in the back ground.
One action that might help get rid of such spyware is to restart your 
computer in safe mode, then run ad-aware.
But I think you would need sighted assistance to do this since Jaws will not 
run in safe mode.
You can go into the settings of ad-aware and tell it to run at start up, but 
since I have never done this, I can not tell you how this is accomplished!
Good luck, and hope this helps!
Chris Chaffin
