Winamp and SPECIFIC Ad-ware problem...

    Preliminary info:

    Operating System: XP
    Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy

    #1) Winamp - Every once in a while for some unbeknownst reason, my Winamp fails to work, saying the audio driver is bad. I go to Sounds and Audio Devices on the Control Panel, and everything is greyed out like I don't have a sound card installed. I have to go and update my drivers on Creative's website, and then it works fine...for a while...then repeat process.

    #2) I have followed ALL the steps in the Sticky at the top of this forum regarding Spyware/Ad-ware. There are three little programs that ALWAYS find their way into my system. They are: Cashback Buddy, Bulls Eye Network (bargains.exe), and NaviSearch (nls.exe). Cashback Buddy is the gayest one because it not only runs at Windows startup, it also runs itself again and again and again after you end the process, until you remove it from your system completely. I have even deleted the registry keys, and I guess it just writes another key every time.

    Any help you can offer on either of these would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.
