My son's laptop was hit with spyware. managed to get rid of most of it by using Spybot and adaware and removed via hijack this some search entries. He is still getting a yellow flashing triangle in toolbar saying that he is infected with spyware. When the triangle is clicked it opens a page advertising various removal tools from

He is running XP SP1
