This questionn is similar to the PAQ.  Although, with two added adware and/or spyware programs.  

I have www.ads234.com, PC Weasel and a program? called BDE on the system.  I have used Hijackthis, Spybot, Adaware and other adware and spyware to remove these but ads234.com keeps popping up because none of these applications scan this particular adware threat and PCWeasel and BDE are neither detected by these programs.  How do I get rid of these programs when they are not detected by these programs?  

Thank you.
