My computer was infected with websearch, apropos, bookedspace and elitebar. After running all 4 spyware removal software, anti-spyware, spybot, ad-aware and spy sweeper and googling each of these adware, going into my registry and meticulous cleaning my system (I also have PC-cillian on my system), Each of these 4 came up clean. Hi-Jackthis also looked good. I was running in safemode, so then I rebooted my computer back into normal mode, ran all 4 spyware software again and the computer was still clean, so I plugged into the internet again, and I got a notice from spy sweeper that abetterinternet.aurora was trying to access my system. I thought that I had removed it, but I still get internet pop-ups. I have spent hours deleting files and researching which files to delete. I have attached my HijackThis log in hoping that I can find out what I missed. I have rerun all of my spyware removal software and everything is clean, so I'm stumped.

I would be really appreciative of any help. I've stopped services and changed registry files, my final step is to do a clean install of XP. I have young kids and do not want all of these sex ads popping up!!

Thank you very much for your time.
