    First off this isn't my computer and I have no idea how the fuck it's owner was running it without an anti-virus, spyware remover or software firewall.

    To the problem, I'm having trouble removing some bargain buddy related ad/spyware specifically CashBack, BullsEye Network and NaviSearch. I've built up a new defense arsenal for the computer and used everything (Avast, CWShread, Ad-Aware, Spybot, Spy Sweeper) to clean it up, only to have the above spyware regenerate itself upon every system restart. I've tried manually deleting their folders, using the uninstall wizard in the control panel and the above listed spyware removers but still nothing..
    Any ideas on what to do next.. ?

    (yes i've also read teh sticky).

    Post the HJT log, I'm sure we can figure it out. Also, spybot came out with new def's yesterday, give them a spin to see if it fixes the problem. Also, don't forget to use the immunize function in it.
