I had dicovered that this adware had been installed in my computer... I immediately rebooted my computer in safe mode and ran Spybot and Microsoft Anti Spyware. After getting the results with over 20 infected files and registry keys .. I got to work and removed all of them one by one.

I then rebooted in safe mode again and ran the same programs to see if any adware/ spyware had been detected. Unfortunately, there was one file that was detected by Microsoft Antispyware and it is:


I obviously tried deleting it but it's not letting me. The error message I'm getting is that it is being used by another person/ program. So far I have kept my system in safe mode for fear that this adware will spread once again. What can I do??

I hope someone can push me in the right direction in resolving this...

Many thanks
