How to get rid of this vermin? So far, it's been interfering only with tinyurl.com, stalling when going to the site and again when using it - but I want to get rid of it before it causes other damage.

AdwCleaner

Thanks for the suggestion. I already ran Malwarebytes (and SuperAntiSpyware), but nothing was found.

In fact, while Avast! and SAS find and prevent hundreds of problems regularly, Malwarebytes has *never* found anything on my PC (64-bit Windows 7).

you mean tracking cookies....avast and malwarebytes does not scan for  cookies

Are cookies really spyware and are they dangerous?

so what is it avast detect all the time?
did you run AdwCleaner?



if you still have problems.....from the same guide i gave you above, scroll down to OTL...
attach the OTL diagnostic logs and a malware expert will have a look later today..
