    Not real sure if this is the right area to post, but every time I scan with AV or AT I get the same uncleanable results...
    + Scan result:
    C:\WINNT\system32\mac80ex.idf/C:/WINNT/system32/msbe.dll -> Spyware.BargainBuddy.i -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\mac80ex.idf/C:/Program Files/BullsEye Network/bin/bargains.exe -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\mac80ex.idf/C:/Program Files/BullsEye Network/bin/adv.exe -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\mac80ex.idf/C:/Program Files/BullsEye Network/bin/adx.exe -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/exdl.exe -> Spyware.BargainBuddy.j -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/mqexdlm.srg -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/exul.exe -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/javexulm.vxd -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/bbchk.exe -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/msexreg.exe -> Spyware.Bargainbuddy -> Error during cleaning
    C:\WINNT\system32\netut80ex.vxd/C:/WINNT/system32/instsrv.exe -> Spyware.BargainBuddy -> Error during cleaning

    Adaware, Spybot, etc., lists nothing, and I have no files or folders anywhere that even sound like bargain buddy. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is it safe to just delete netut80.vxd and mac80ex.idf?

    yes it is. after that clean the registry. The DLL's are running, so they cannot be terminated without special knownledge. They fastest way is to boot in safe mode and wipe these files away.

    Normally you will have an entry in you add/remove programs for BargainBuddy. Look for an entry with bargain, buddy, or bullseye in the name that you do not recognize and remove it. Then you av should be able to remove any leftover files.....

    Yep, went through all that stuff, and none of it is on my system, except those two files that are compressed with the baddies inside them.

    I am having EXACTLY this problem too! I have also gone to Add/Remove Programs and cannot find Bargain Buddy.
    Any advice on what you did to fix this problem, or have you still got this problem? I am new to this Forum so dont know if I may have missed a answer!
    Thank you!
