What program are you scanning with that is alerting you to this spyware?

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

You need to start there first. If you don't have any anti-virus or anti-malware programs see BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources and at least scan with Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D. In #4 there is a list of several free online anti-virus scans which you can perform. I would also recommend that you download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "SAFE MODE".

The reason Quietman7 asked what programs are finding the supposedly malware is that there are numerous "rogue" programs that tell you that you are infected just to convince you to pay for something you don't need.
If you haven't scanned with Super Antispyware as he suggested, you should.
If you have used SAS and you are still infected, post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum. DO NOT post the log in this forum. The directions for posting are in the link below.
