What do mean when you say, "I can't find Spybot"? Do you mean you can't find software that is installed on your computer or that you can't find the url to get it?

CW Shredder removes some variants of spyware known as the Coolwebsearch Trojan. The Trojan takes advantage of a flaw in a key component of Windows -- Microsoft's version of the Java Virtual Machine -- to install itself via popups often found on porn and illegal software (a.k.a. "warez") sites. Run CWShredder after installing, and have it look for updates. Then click the "Fix" button, and the program will both scan and fix any problems it finds. If your system does not have this kind of spyware, it will give you the good news.

What I suggest you do is to download, install, update and then run both Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy using safe mode when you run them.
If you still have a problem after that I suggest you post a HijackThis log for assistance with your problem.
Read the pinned post in the HijackThis forum, here Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.
Following instructions run a log, and post it in the appropriate HJT forum, at this link
. Do not attempt to fix anything by yourself using Hijack This yet.
A member of the HJT Team will analyze the log, make recommendations and offer assistance.
It may take a period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of the HJT Team are kept very busy. Please

Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT forum until you get a response from a member of the HJT expert team.
The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies
