I've been working on removing some spyware/adware on a computer. The hardest one to get rid of was one called webtracer that created a couple of things that were a bit difficult to get rid of. Spybot and MS Anti-spyware removed most but were having problems with a couple. Hijackthis also was having a bit of a problem.
The difficult ones to remove were:
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = hzzp://rl.webtracer.cc/-/?bayzm
O19 - User stylesheet: C:\WINDOWS\stsheets.dat
Some pretty good info here on getting rid of them.
The only addition to that was that I had to remove all of the attributes with the attrib command:
attrib -H -S -R -A stsheets.dat , before I could remove it.
The registry keys could not be deleted because they were read only. So I modified the permissions and was able to remove it.
Just an FYI to help anyone else with the same problem.
