My son's laptop was hit with spyware. managed to get rid of most of it by using Spybot and adaware and removed via hijack this some search entries. He is still getting a yellow flashing triangle in toolbar saying that he is infected with spyware. When the triangle is clicked it opens a page advertising various removal tools from

Any ideas folks how to get rid of this pest.

He is running XP SP1

Anything in add/remove programs?

Are you up for a reinstall of Windows? Often the best solution...

If it is a shortcut have you tried dragging it to the desktop and deleting it ?
