While on a music website using Internet Explorer, I believe WinAntiSpyware 2007 was downloaded onto my computer (running Windows XP). I have run Spybot - Search & Destroy, but there are three registries that it cannot fix. When restarting, Spybot will remove the registries but there must be another file because they reinstall. I'm not sure what the next step for removing this should be. Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Could be either Vundo or Smitfraud infection.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

(It is possible that Super Antispyware will remove the problem)

Review Super Antispyware's report and if Vundo is mentioned, use the tools in the link below.
