How to get rid of TBPS.exe and WToolsA.exe

  logoff 18:13 26 Oct 2005

I have a Pentium 4 PC with 1 Gig of SDRAM memory and running Windows XP Home & SP2
I use Norton AV always, also have Spybot and Adaware which I run occasionally but not every week

The problem I seem to have is in the start menu where the files TBPS.exe and WToolsA.exe seem to lurk and are proving difficult to get rid of. I have been trying to use Chem Table's Reg Organizer to do this so far without luck. It locates the relevant files and I delete but next time I log on they are back.

Also get error in start up when message "windows cannot find C:\progam. always appears

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks for the response-not sure what the Hijack anti-spyware is? Will try to find and attempt this asap.

Thanks to Fruit Bat /\0/\ and VoG™-will try this-probably tomorrow now and will let you know results.

Not been successful yet-having run HJI the advice is to reboot in safe mode and then use add/remove programmes to remove C:\Program Files\Toolbar and Wintools

Can't find these files-any suggestions as to where they might be?
Thanks in advance
