Hello all,
I am having trouble removing the following files. I know that this is spyware. I've tried going into safe mode and deleting the vairious files that have been created on the day I recieved the spyware/virus, but some of them just won't go away. At first, the spyware called itself "sqlbkup.exe" and everytime I tried to end process, it would come back. I found out that this file was in the Prefetch folder of Windows in C and tried to delete it, but it just kept coming back. Now, it seems to have a buddy in this Surfsidekick3 (which I assume is the same thing). Surfsidekick3 was not the only part of the spywayre, but it's the one I'm having trouble removing. I have also found another file named "timessquare.exe" and it won't remove itself either. If anybody can help me out with this, I would gladly appreciate it! Thanks so much for any help!

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
