6. It changes your homepage? It isn't spyware, it is a hijacker then.
You should download Hijack This and get someone to look at the log file for you.

5. Reboot in Safe Mode then run them again. Also ...........
Make sure in Folder Options they are set to Show All Files.

Start - Control Panel - Folder Options - View - Show All Files

Then re-run them.
