1) Turn off System Restore. Control Panel>System>System Restore 2) Boot in Safe mode. Press F8 before the Windows loading screen starts. 3) Run all anti-spyware/adware programs.

I got itself in your registry and that is your problem! You need to find it in there and delete it!

you need "Hijackthis", for picking it out of the registry. Use your anti-spy to get the file name, find it in the registry and delete. (all in safe mode)
