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

Download and run AIMFix to remove all known AOL Instant Messenger-related viruses.

Download Sysclean Package and the latest Virus Pattern Files - (Pattern files are usually named lptxxx.zip, where xxx is the pattern file number).
Be sure to print out out and follow the instructions provided in the How to Use System Cleaner for performing a scan.
This tool generates a log file (sysclean.log) in the same folder where the scan is completed - C:\Sysclean.
When using Sysclean its best to use the Administrator's account or an account with Administrative rights otherwise you will not have access rights to scan some locations. You can also Use the "Run As" Command to Start a Program as an Administrator. Even when doing that, the scanning process may result in "Access Denied" messages for some files. This is normal because these files are protected by the system.

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free.

Then perform this online Virus scan: BitDefender Online Scanner. <- Add a check by "Autoclean".
