Default Spyware that wont go away

everytime i boot up my comp and scan I get like 8 or 9 diff kinds of spyware that totals about 60-70 files...I get rid of them but they keep comin back. adaware doesnt even pick up on it but spybot does...How can I keep these from comin back? I look in my processes and doesnt look like anything out of the ordinary...I had a java based virus but got rid of that.

Try sunbelt's counterspy removal if that doesn't help you might want to try searching for removal instructions on how to remove that certain spyware which might include removing the spywares registery keys.

I hate to say but you might have to either fotmat or try searchin those those companies names and looking for instructions on to remove them manually thats the only option left or you could try Microsoft Anti-Spyware beta 1.
