Try Norton, if that doesnt work, go for SB and Adaware.

I have had a bad experience with that type of spyware. Still havnt got rid of it. And its been on my computer for more then a month.

Get Spybot Search & Destroy, it's simple crap adware, Spybot should sort it out. (don't forget to update Spybot before running a scan)
