    This darn program keeps coming back for more. I dont know how i got it, but after running Ad-Aware, Spybot, And Spy Sweeper it still keeps coming back. Any suggestions would help me too keep my sanity. :wtc: Thanks.

    Have you updated those programs before running them. I use Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D on lots of machines and regularly remove PurityScan. It stays gone too unless the user repeats what infected their computer in the first place.

    Thanks for the replies. I actually found a un-install program that has so far seemed to do the trick.

    Read the link I posted to double check it took.
    Sometimes the uninstaller will leave something behind

    I had the same problem with that + a few other pieces of spyware.... I pretty much had to remove them by hand, they were saved in about 5-6 different places and the software would find all but one or two, so they kep coming back.
