I have been using Spybot Search and Destroy for a while now. I notice that every time I run it I see the same things. I repair and it says they are taken care of. I empty the recycle bin and restart my computer. The next time I run it, I get all the same infections again. Is there a way to permanently remove these?

If Spybot is only identifying cookies and removing the cookies, you can block those cookies from ever getting on your IE browser. See info in link below.

If Spybot is removing more than cookies, see info in link below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
