Still can't get rid of spyware?

Try posting your problems in the forums. It is recommended that you install HijackThis before going to forums.

HijackThis is a tool which you should use after you have tried everything but in vain. It doesn't attempt to identify which code it thinks is spyware, and it won't offer to remove the spyware automatically. To use HijackThis effectively, you will need advice from the experts. HijackThis looks deep into Windows where spyware programs can hide, and help you figure out how to uproot them. After running the program HijackThis gives you an inventory of everything it has found in the different locations where spyware can live. You should post the results of this log, along with a description of your symptoms, on any spyware related forum and somebody would be able to assist you.
