Please help!

There are 4 MiniBug entries identified by Spybot Search and Destroy on my computer with Microsoft XP Home that cannot be removed because "the associated files are still in use (in memory). What can I do to remove them?

Do you have WeatherBug installed on your system? Wheatherbug shows as Minibug in a system that has WeatherBug installed. And is considered to be adware.

Try scanning and removing them while in safe mode.

If you have installed it yourself. And you choose to keep it. Leave them be.

If you did not install it yourself. (Sometimes it will sneak in on it's own) And you would like to remove it.

Remove it through Add/Remove within your control panel.
