    Virus busters... that is some nasty spyware right there. please go here http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html and download spybot, it is free, update all the definitions, immunize your system, and run a FULL system scan ASAP. also, consider using the system settings protection it has called "tea timer", this prevents stuff like virus busters from taking over and changing things. if spybot does not clear it up, please post again, and we'll find you some more anti spyware programs that might help.

    ok, this sounds bad. try windows defender. i know it's from microsoft, but you need serious help here man.

    also, a lot of people in this forum seem to like hijackthis. try it here http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/programs.php generate a log, and post the log here for us to diagnose

    if you can't fix this somehow, you should definitely format your hard drive and reinstall windows asap. god only know what that spyware program is doing while it's living on your pc.
