Hi
Norton keeps picking up the following adware in it's scans, yet fails to delete them. According to symantec site all I have to do is keep my definitions up to date, which they are, but it fails to remove. Adaware and spybot doesn't even pick them up. Went looking for the files but couldn't find them even with hidden file view enabled.

The problems are Adware.look2me which is listed in C:\windows\system32\req.dat.

also Adware.adpopup which is in C:\windows\playap.dll

If these are nothing to worry about I will exclude them from scan, but was wondering if anyone can help in regard to getting rid.
