Altnet removal help needed!

  Rhuddlan 16:21 30 Jun 2005

A friend's son of mine installed Kazza a few days ago and now Ad Aware, spybot and MS Antispyware have found Altnet on the comp. I have uninstalled Kazza for her and tried to remove Altnet from these anti spyware programmes, but after scanning the comp again, it appears. Can't find it in the registry or in program files. Have searched for a removal tool on the net but to no avial. Can anyone please help?

Hi there again, done as suggested and Altnet just won't shift. Ad Aware, spybot and MS Antispyware find it and can't get rid of it. I found some removal instructions that told me to edit the registry and find some keys, but when I found the keys, it said due to an error, I could not remove or delete the keys! Cleared out temp internet files, turned off then turned back on system restore etc. Can anyone help? It doesn't seem to be affecting the comp in anyway, it would just be nice to get rid of it for good!
