I've scanned for spyware with Ad-Aware, and Spybot S&D.
I had a lot of infections, and I cleaned them out. However, after restarting it keeps coming back.
I've tried using msconfig, and clearing all the startup process then restarting, and scanning again. This doesn't work also.
I'm running XP Home Edition
256 MB RAM
758 MB Virtual Memory

Any suggestion would be appreciated

Try doing your scans in safe mode.

If your using Win XP/2K, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
