It keeps coming back because you keep visiting the same site that downloads it.

Download SUPERAntiSpyware Home Edition (free version)

Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.

***Close all other browser windows before
scanning
  • Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
  • Click the Scanning Control tab.
  • Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
  • Scan for tracking cookie
  • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
    Please leave the others unchecked.
  • Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
  • On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software
    click Scan your computer.
  • On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform
    Complete Scan
    .

    Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your
    computer.
    After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.

    Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click
    Next.
    It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click
    Yes.

Ok so how do I know what site it's coming from and after I d/l this program you suggested will it get rid of it for good or be the same as spybot? Keep coming back?
