    have you tried registry yet?
    proggies that start everytime your comp boots generally have an entry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

    google both those file names.. you'll see info on them

    you should also delete the \Common files\WinTools folders too..

    and I'll bet there's a few other things on your box that you'd need to get rid of..

    I would download hijackthis.. extract it to a folder.. like c:\program files\hjt

    then run it and post your log here..

    HijackThis direct download:

    i use spywareblaster and spy killer(had to pay to use, but very effective) to rid my computer of spyware. i figure if one doesnt get them all the other will...and on top of that i'm running norton internet security pro edition (which i also had to pay for at a reduced price!) for the most part...unless ur a true programist, then do it the legal way if you can afford it. (try before you buy)
    stuff....junk...+ 1(posts)

    You can also delete those manually. If they do not want to delete, get into their script and delete part of it. That will also kill it. Before you do that, turn off your system restore. Do not forget to turn it back on after you get these things removed. Doing a Highjack this log is also an excellent idea. Whoever suggested that should get 20 points.
