I'm infected with cws.oslogo.It's located in "software\microsoft\internet explorer\styles\user stylesheet".That's what Xoftspyse found in a search.I can't afford to by it though.I have ad-Awear,spybot,spywear blaster,superantispyware,malwarebytes,and zone alarm security(the only one I pay for).None of those can find it.Is there a way to get rid of it.

It could be a false postive. I'd be skeptical of the detection especially if none of your other programs are finding anything, you're not finding suspcicious processes running and you're not experiencing any problems with your pc like slow browser performance/redirects.

XoftSpy is a program that was previously listed as a rogue product on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products List because of concerns with False positives, questionable license terms, and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising, including exploitation of the name "Spybot". It has since been delisted but in my opinion it is not a very effective program compared to others with a proven track record like those mentioned in BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources or one of the other Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products.
