Under Name in Spyware nuker they are described as KAZAA BUT i HAVE NEVER loaded that program. How do I get rid of these?????

Have you tried adaware or spybot or even counterspy to see if any of these can delete them. It sounds as if your Spyware nuker program is not deleting the source of the spyware since it appears to reinstall itself each time you turn back on. I've never heard of this particular program so cannot comment on its effectivness.

Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs

Remove Spyware Nuker

One thing that may help,is to turn off system restore,do a scan,clean if needed,then turn system restore back on.
You'd be surprised the things that attach themselves to the restore points.
Hope it helps

"You'd be surprised the things that attach themselves to the restore points."

Meaning what exactly? Why would "dirty" SR Points be a problem? The malware can't magically restore itself from SR without your intervention.

I turned off system restore and tried a clean but back they came. Ive tried Ad-aware-Spybot -A2-Microsoft but none of them find it. The description of these two is "bundles spyware and adware programs then reinstalls them after they have been deleted". Any ideas???

Yes, remove Spyware Nuker. Run Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here

Sorry, you've run them. Almost certainly a false positive - see click heres from PaulB2005 and myself.

In my experience, doing as I suggested has helped me get rid of unwanted items.
