I guess my original thread on this died, so I'm starting a new one. I have two programs on my computer that I can't get rid of. One is called AdStatus and the other is AdMan. They keep trying to change my start menu, but AdAware blocks them. I want to delete these programs, but I can't find them. If I run Hijack This (see log below) it finds them, but it doesn't fix them. The paths that Hijack This shows do not come up when I look for them in Explorer, so I can't manually delete them. (Yes, I do have Show Hidden Files selected.) The programs do not appear in Add/Remove programs either. Eventhough they are being blocked, I am not comfortable with their being there. I think that this might be a fairly new hijacker program. Any ideas on how to remove them?
