I am having a real problem with some adware spyware which has got onto my pc

I downloaded Microsoft Antisyware BETA 1 at it removed load of files
This DNS Catcher however when removed keeps returning and I cant get rid of it
Each Time the antispyware removes it I restart and the pc trys to connect to the internet(to click here which them starts to install more files!)
Even if i do not allow it onto the internet
It still get the following
I them get the following message MA Beta
'Warning MA has detected the threat DNS Catcher trying to install a browser helper Object on your computer.
Name DNS Catcher
Type Adware
Threat level severe'
I always choose the option to remove it
Then I do a MS Beta scan and the same two reports appear

1 DNS Catcher (Adware)
two locations
Location C:\Program Files\Common Files\Services.exe
and C:\Program Files\DNS\gui.exe

2Browser Ad(Browser Plug in)
11 Locations

and 6 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\typelib\....

Please let me how to stop these coming back ever time i turn on the pc
This is on XP

Kind Regards

have you disabled sys restore first before scanning and fixing ? (bear in mind you'll lose your restore point) and don't forget to switch back on after.

I have system restore off and the problem occurs when system restore is off
