I have Spybot Search and Destroy, Lavasoft's Ad-aware, and Spywareblaster and run them all frequently (every one or two days). My problem is that when I run Adaware and Spybot the same problem files are ALWAYS found by these programs.
It seems that either these files are not really removed form my system after I run these two programs, or they simply reinsert themselves every time I open my web browser (IE6).
Any ideas?

What are the programs that keep showing up?

Ad-aware turns up "Altnet BDE'" with a TAC rating of 4. It is listed as a Regkey type, and in the dataminer category.

With Spybot, I get 5 Data Source Object Exploit files as follows:
1. HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18
Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3
2. HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-81516808-3116434273-1801263224-1008\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet Settings\Zones....
3. HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Software....as above......\Zones\0\1004!=W=3
4. as above \S-1-5-20.......as above
5. HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\.....as above

The scan then stops itself giving message "Error during check.

What do these things mean and how do I solve this problem?
