If you've deleted it in the normal way and it keeps coming back then
you've got mal-ware that installed itself. I presume you run some kind
of anti-virus software?

If you do, then then next step is to look for stuff advertisers have
installed. Two free programs to do this that you can find on the web
are Ad-Aware from www.Lavasoftusa.com and Spybot that you'll have to do
a web search to find.

Since you've got a genuine problem, I'd download and run both programs.
One may find things the other doesn't.

Good luck....

First eliminate any scumware.
CAUTION!!!!! Before you try to remove spyware using any of these programs ,
download a copy of LSPFIX from any of the following sites:
http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm
http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html
(if your OS is Win2k or XP) The process of removing certain malware may kill
your internet connection. If this should occur, this program, LSPFIX, will
enable you to regain your connection.

See
Dealing with Unwanted Malware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm

Note that AdAware and SpyBot S & D will each catch some things the other
won't. Also, each needs to be updated with the program's update function
before every use, even when just downloaded. There's also a lot more to do
than just those two programs. CWShredder is also available here:
