I found it.

I have had spyware on my PC for a couple of days. Neither Ad-Aware or SpyBot was finding it. I found it in the startup menu. It was a VB script called Search.VBS


I killed it. :)

How did you discover that it was there in the first place? Paranoid Curious minds want to know.

damn pop up ads
I kept having ads pop up. Then i finally used msconfig to check out my startup. and found the file was being run at startup.

Re: damn pop up ads
Ah! Thanks for that tip. I've had a suspicion that something's going on underneath the covers of my system, but I can't pin it down because there's no real outward sign (like pop ups).

And I made the mistake of selecting a preference in Spybot that keeps it hidden -- and now I can't undo it! Not even uninstalling and re-installing the damned thing will let me access it directly. Grrrrr...
