    There are some dll files in the windows and system32 folders which are shown as spywares. I don't remove them as they can be important system files. How do i cure this.

    download hijackthis form http://216.180.233.162/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe then just start start it u'll get n option "do a system scan and save logfile" use it to get the logfile this file shows u a snapshot of programs running at startup various BHO,toolbars installed,services executing at startup blabla bla these info is helpful in identifying and removing malacious code.
