Try Spy Sweeper and Nod32. See if they find and get rid of it.

also might want to d/c from the internet to keep it from causing any further damage. most of the time the reson an antivirus/antispyware app. cant get rid of it is because it is running and still in memory. try getting rid of it through safe mode.

Try the ad-aware programme that may pick it up, it's actually a really powerfull anti spyware and adware remover and it's also free, but it sounds more like some sort of trojan, hmmm just see how you go.
