so i have gotten a [bleep] load of spyware lately...adds every thirty seconds...every couple of hours my auto-protect on norton will shut off and a link to a virus will be sent to every person online on my msn contact list...i ran my anit virus, it found two files that were infected but it couldnt delete them...files were:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\W32RfSA.exe

C:\WINDOWS\system32\fgr.exe

i looked for them directly and apparently they arent anywhere on my computer...all my hidden files are shown and they are still not here

i ran Ad-Aware about 20 times until nothing was found and my "system was ok"...then restarted my computer to see if ive gotten rid of everything...everything comes back...some of it is Ebates MoneyMaker...some of its a "Click Me" thing...

does anyone have any suggestions on how to successfully get rid of this [bleep] forever?

Sounds like you're infected with the newest form of malware---rootkits.

Please visit the malware forum in my signature, following the instructions at the top. If the issue continues, the last step is to install hijackthis and post a log. Do that, but include POSSIBLE ROOTKIT in the title of the thread to alert one of MALWARE EXPERTS
