Default Spyware Question (I Have Read The Thread Also...Please Read)

Ok here is my situation:

I do not look at pornographic material on the internet at all. I recently opened a bad email address, that installed a pornographic plugin into my computer. I have ran both Spybot and Adaware...and they do not remove the files. When I delete the shortcuts, they return on their own. When I delete the .exe and .dlr files, the whole folder returns. I am really lost...I delete every file associated with that one, and still it comes back.
Can anyone help me with this? I really dont know what to do anymore

Yes I have Mr. Mix
I currently have Spybot, Adaware and another called Spyware Blaster. It says that it has removed the spyware (Name of it is TIBS) even the registry keys. But for some reason it keeps coming back and reinstalling. I have not looked at any porn for this to keep coming back...so that is why I ask for help.

PS: I will look into your thread Techno...thanks for the info


NEW EDIT-
I downloaded the Microsoft AS program. It saw the TIBS Porn Dialer (Thats what it is called), and said it deleted it. I restarted my computer...and upon start up the plugin came back, and reinstalled the program. The .dlr files and icons did not show up...but the program is still there

I also obtained new info on my situation:

Could it be possible that I cannot fully delete it because it installed on my computer? Because as many spyware removals as I do, it always comes back
So, when I open the Add/Remove Program list...it isnt there, and there is no uninstallation.exe file...so I am really stuck here

Any information regarding what I should do is really really appreciated...because I dont want to reformat

Ok, here's what to do....it's from another thread that i made to help a simular prob.

all you have to do is do the same thing he did, only use the (tibs) in the search ...to search it out in the registry.

Here is the thread...

I did it twice Mr. Mixx, and it does not work
I think I will have to reformat

I mean, I have typed in TIBS, Porn, Sex, XxX, 127021 (Another code name)..exported it..deleted it....everything you said...it just came back. What am i missing?

What is the exact name of the dialer ? You have to put in the search .exe or .dll or what ever file association it is.
