Thanks for any help

Try the free NOD32 on-line scan. It's very new, and NOD32 is probably the best Anti- Virus/Malware there is click here

for what it's worth, first thing I would say is you can have too much of a good thing. Spyware aps are like anti-virus applications - you should only have one. You also need to remember that some Spyware applications offer a service in exchange for them passing information back; they are spyware themselves. Pick one and stick with it. I use Spybot Search & Destroy. But I am sure MS Windows Defender is a really good one. Sticl with it and get rid of the others.
As for AV, as DieSse says, NOD 32 is also excellent, but so is AVG and Norton. Install am AV applicaiton, reboot into safe mode and run the AV and Windows Defender as many times as you need to. If they don't get rid of the problem. Note the name of the little ba$..rd and Google it to learn tips from others who had the pleasure.
Good luck
