Okay, here's my dilemma. My computer became infected with mass spyware a few days ago, and adaware started cleaning up hundreds of files. It seems no matter what I did though it always came back. It turns out that I had aquired the evil twaintec.dll and that I could only eliminate it for a little while at a time before it came back with a host of toolbars and all kinds of crap. Whenever I ran adaware it usually only found 4 to 12 files, but when I tried the trial version of Scan Spyware 3.7 it found hundreds more, so I figured it was doing what adaware could not (yes, it had the latest update). In order to clean everything up I had to purchase the full version, a desperate move from someone like me if there ever was one. It eliminated a good portion of it at first but now every time I run it it finds the exact same files, and each time I delete them I immediately scan again to find that they haven't gone away. This happens regardless of if I restart in order to elimate the shared registry files or if I am connected to the internet. Every time I restart if finds hundreds of files, including twaintec. I am very frustrated with this and would love it if someone could shed some light on what I have to do to fix this.
