I am wondering...

If you need to; shut off system restore, scan and quarantine to remove this program then go back and delete the quarantined files saved by ad-aware, then turn on system restore and set a new restore point. That would be the same thing you did when you removed a worm or virus because system restore holds the files and brings them back into your system. You could also try start>run>regedit and remove the listings and little trails of the program after you remove the program. I find the control "F" (find) and type in the name of the removed program works best to locate registry key entries because you can just keep doing it until all of the entries are gone. Just be careful you don't remove something you need.

Thanks, I'll try that. I'm telling you getting rid of these spies is tough.
