If you know exactly which files are causing this, try rebooting your PC in the safe mode, and delete them manually. This is how i did it last time, when Spybot and Adaware failed me big time.

Spyware my ass! Sounds like you've got a RAT problem (remote accelerated trojan.) I can't help you but maybe they can: www.pestpatrol.com

From what we found out so far it seems to be a virus that takes over your homepage!Looks like theres quit a few others who have been nailed by this.And Wackmeister seems right it looks like a trojan horse type..

Out of the past 8 times I've seen this problem, 3 were caused by a virus, and 5 were caused by spyware... be sure to follow all of this advice and investigate both!

Try http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
or search google for an online viruschecker (try Panda).

Also, be sure to download spybot, install it, UPDATE IT, and run it.

Finally, download Ad-aware, and try that too (updated)
