If the scanners (ad-aware Spybot etc) cannot clean your machine, you should post to one of the specialist forums where an expert would be able to assist you.

Here is a list of specialist forums from the ASAP group of voluntary forums - click here - you will find my own teaching forum ( click here ) on that list, but all of them would be able to assist you.

My suggestion is you follow the advice in this topic:- click here

Then post to any one of the ASAP forums for assistance.
