I have this thing on my computer(??rss.exe) and can't get it to go away. Spybot S&D misses it, AdAwareSE can see it but not delete it, Startup Inspector lists it but won't remove it. Please help me if you can. Thanx. :thumbsup:

Have you run Ad-AwareSE, as well as your anti-virus, in Safe Mode?
Can you reply and post the path Ad-Aware shows?
Regards,
John
