you get a lot of spyware through MSN plus, if you have that, or anything else like that that attracts spyware then get rid of it first.

How did you get it installed?

You may have to remove the program that installed it. Such as K:Censored: Installs Gator, and your have to remove the former, to get rid of the latter.

See if any of the tips in this Google Search will help. http://www.google.com/search?q=lop+spyware&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official

Also: always go into safe mode and disable system restore when deleting files.

did you download any programs that you use off the internet? They alot of times have some spyware/adware bundled in with them. also if you didn't already, switch to Firefox, you get a lot less spyware that way, and after you delete it with Spybot, run it's Immunize program, that might help in not getting it again. and yes, the system restore, disable it, as some spyware and viruses like to make backups of themselves in the restore files.
