    Spybots?

    Apparently I have some spybots. How do I remove them? Clam doesn't do it.

    I have found BitDefender easier to use and very accurate. Installation can be a little troublesome but when properly installed it works great.

    Have you recently ran any scripts/installed unknown packages?

    sounds like a mozilla exploit.

    Try with chromium. If chromium does not have it, then you shall clean up your firefox and thunderbird profiles.
