Choto Cheeta

However it returns after a while. Please help..

keep the TeaTimer or rather autoprotection of Spybot turned on and scan the system regulerlly...

now why it comes back ??

it is possible that we may have your System Restore Option turned on... therefore it may hide there as while the System Restore option is turned on no security software is allowed to modify it :( therefore Virus of Spyware may hide there...

Disable the System Restore, run a Onloine Scan from Kaspersky or Symantec... it may solve the problem
