Hello tentavarious =)

Not only Spybot, u shud run the following three tools also to make sure that ur system is really clean :)

AdAware ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/adaware.html
CoolWebShredder ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/coolwebshredder.html
Stigner ==> http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

and when u run them, Run them in safemode and delete everything they detect !!
and delete that ieplugin thingy also, if Spybot is picking it up,,, coz if its harmful or junk, there is no need to keep it on ur system :)

Post Back if u have anymore question :)
