Ad-aware can remove those, you just need to change the settings. Run a custom scan and tell it it search inside archives, search all files and folders, and then run it. From what I have found, a custom scan works MUCH better than the preferred scan.
AAW is been prevented from running. Afte CWS has ran then yes AAW should be able to clean up unless something else is blocking it.

Ad-Aware, hijackthis, and Spybot are good to use to remove it. The other best method is not to click yes to every javasript pop up you see ;)

Heeter you can try regcleaner in instances like this too. If you delete the registry entrees it cuts the head off the monster.

I check my system once a week with regcleaner and its always amazing how something I never heard of has snuck into the system.

I delete the reg entry then delete the folder where it was pointing to.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
