David (and Andre), Have you updated your version of Spybot to the latest version? I upgraded to version 1.2, I am not sure how long it has been available. So now, every time I use Spybot I first have it check for updates, and there are usually some new ones and I find it has been working really well. I would be willing to pay for it if I had to buy it!

I had a similar problem not long ago. BHOD and Spybot were unable to solve it. They couldn't even identify the creature that was behind the mess. Try this. 1. Download Hijack This (it will create a scan log of your system). 2. Run the scan, create a log, save it and copy it to the clipboard. 3. Go to http://boards.cexx.org/viewforum.php?f=1. It's a spyware help forum. 4. Bookmark the page, so you can get back when you need to. 5. Open a ticket there and request help - describing the problem AND pasting in your HijackIt scan log (properly identified) at the end of your message. 6. Keep checking for answers. My problem was solved completely - along with a couple of others I hadn't asked about - when one of their kind-hearted, volunteer experts posted an answer with detailed instructions. It only took a couple of hours to get the problem solved. I think everyone reading this should bookmark the above URL's...just in case. Good luck.
