Can't help you but I'll post a link with 'dodgy' spyware removal apps. The apps on this list are programs one should NOT try.

I just used spyware s&d and adware so I can't personally vouch for any other apps. Hopefully someone here will spread light on the issue for you.

Do a search on the linked forum above. That site helped me out enormously a while back. Btw...there's any number of types of crap that s&d and adaware can't see or can't remove. Good luck.

Ohh and if its a serious bug....then it will likely be a multi-step, multi-app process to get rid of it.

You have to be very careful with this app and read the instructions. It scans all known locations on your computers registry for spy ware, mal ware, and services. You have to read each line and determine if it belongs or is suspicious.

Tread very carefully with it. Google each item before you delete it.

At the majorgeeks site, you can post your hijackthis log and they will anilize it for you. But only if they ask you to and they won't do that until you have completed all of the steps in thier "read this before you post" tutorial. All the steps took me about 1/2 a day to do, but once completed they were more than willing to help.
