    I get these same two files everytime I scan with Norton, Ad-Aware, and Microsoft AntiSpyware. I delete them everytime, but every couple hours they keep coming back no matter how many times I delete them.

    How can I get rid of this? And why do they keep appearing?

    Something else is putting them there, do u have the new ad-aware or the old one? I had the same problem, stupid files kept returning...

    Ad-aware 6.0 couldn't get rid of it, would delete then come back...

    Eventually I upgraded to SE and it took care of it.

    I'm using Ad-Aware 6.0. I'll try SE.

    Thanks.

    oh shit....istbar...i had that recently...what a bitch to get rid of. press ctrl alt delete, you should find something running that looks rather weird...all diff letters like aekjl.....exe. Do a search for that and you will find it in your windows prefetch folder I believe. Which is the cause for it starting up everytime even though you deleted the istbar and everthing. I used norton removal tool and it did nothing so I had to spend some time to delete this. Find that one file im talkin about...then search for the others and delete them and any refernce to it. Then I went into the registry and deleted anything related to it as well...goodluck, this one is a bitch and no adware or spybot will not get rid of it
