HI

The last week I have been getting loads of pop ups on my laptop.

It keeps telling me go to a web site and download adwareremover2007

I have tried running both adaware and Spy bot in safe mode but these will not remove it :mad:

Have you the latest updates for adaware and spybot installed, does spybot report anything from a scan?

Also, you seem to be using Windows XP, but you aren't using IE7, have you installed all the Windows updates?

I will do a scan on Spybot and post the report up.

Also my laptop is going very very slow and the sound keeps cutting out and stuttering.

I am defragging my hard drive to see if it makes it better.

I cannot seem to find AdwareRemover 2007 in the remove Programs.

You are infected. once you have it cleaned up you also have to close the door the infection used to gain entry.
Disable unrequested pop-ups in your browser(s), view mail as plain text not HTML. seriously consider Firefox and Thunderbird.
Disable java in your Browser(s)

Other things to do as well, plenty of posts about it on here.
