My girl friend's computer has "deal helper" on it. She has spybot and 
SpywareBlaster updated and running on her machine. Which is a 2.2 GHZ box 
running XP Home. Spybot doesn't find/remove this spyware when I run a scan. I 
was told to do the following. 


remove the following items from Add/Remove software.

Twain Tech (not found)

ZSearch (removed)

TV Media (removed)

Deal Helper (could not be removed) 


Then made sure the following were removed from the computer: 


idctup20.exe - file

ACCELE~1\SYSTEM~1\sys_alert.exe - folder (the name will start with those six 

zSearch - folder 

TV Media - folder 


Then I ran spybot again, but it still isn't finding anything. I was told that 
spybot should find and remove deal helper, but I haven't been able to do it. 
(in either safe mode or normal windows mode)  I'm going to download and install 
AdAware next, but I was wondering if anyone else had to remove deal helper. and 
if so, how did you remove it? TIA
