    If spybot finds it but won't remove it, try running spybot in safe mode. The files won't be in use and you'll be able to remove the program.

    safe mode for one.....run spybot. if it won't kill it, run adaware. it deleted something on a friends computer that spybot couldn't delete. and of course, run hijack this as a final solution to make sure there isn't anything else funky in there.
