What file are you using to scan? I'd advise that you visit the Geeks To Go! forum relating to the removal of malware, which can be accessed here -- if that does not help, post your problem in this forum.

i'm using 'spyware doctor'.

i've tried using ad-aware but for some reason the program won't start! It says that there is an error with ad-aware.

Have you tried a fresh install (in safe mode) of Ad-aware? You should just follow the steps provided on this page.
EDIT: You should always try to scan your computer whilst in Safe Mode.

Also, run the Ad-aware in safemode. when things stick in regular mode, I revert to safemode and it works great. scanning is much faster, (obviously) and deleting is, well just about %100 guaranteed.

Also use Spybot, get the updates and run the scan

Good Luck!
