Hi Folks,

Spybot keeps finding something called "Winadvertmen" on my PC, but seems unable to remove it, even though I allow it to run again on reboot.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of this program?

I'm running XP SP2.

After speedy finds any bugs and tells you what to do, you may also want to disable system restore before rebooting.
The little blighters sometimes hide in there also, and come back on next boot.

Hmm looks like trojan remover in my sig, has it in its database.

I would say its called Adware.AdvertMen

The file here may remove it (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319607)

I'll check the log once u post it.

If it relates to this adware, get the uninstall file from the MS site above.
