Second Thought Spyware

Anyone know how to get rid of this crap? I tried the ad-aware and spybot but it keeps coming back. Thanks for any help.

Many computers require you to turn off your system restore to truely get rid of spyware.

You can do so on Windows XP by clicking on 'My Computer', then finding the System Restore section. I dont really remember how to find it on past versions, but I'm sure it's something similar.

Oh yeah you tried it, I would also recomend a good firewall. You also have to update your adaware like every second day.
