Unidentified Spyware?

I had another rash of spyware invasion.  After running Spybot, Ad-aware, and removing programs from ADD/REMOVE I still have two things that are unidentified.  SCHRMT and Rasicm5i in my open task list.  Does anyone know what these are and if they can be deleted maybe through Hijackthis?

Make sure spybot and adware are up to date before you run them and run them in normal and safe mode. Next I would download the latest version of hijackthis, run it, then post the log at the following site to see if that fixes it:

Webroot software has an excellent spyware solution that is frequently updated and affordable.

I use it daily and it can be configured through the use of agents to watch for downloaded software in realtime.

Rasicm5i looks like a random name and this a a common use from viruses.  I would update and scan for viruses.

We have a central link here on Spyware/Malware/Malicious BHOs and tools, it follows:

This is the recommended process for HijackThis use here.

I subscribe to Eacceleration's Stop-Sign, and have never had any spyware problems or virus problems since. Although it costs $4 (US Dollars) per month, it is well worth it.

Well, after much work and a variety of tips and changes to the registry and repeated spyware/adaware cleanings, I thought I had the machine clean when I went to open an mp3 file that I had and the whole thing got triggered again and my machine was full of spyware.  I proceeded to backup my data files and REFORMAT the hardrive.  I did a fresh install and the machine is new again.  It only took a few HOURS.  The crazy thing is as soon as I had it done.......my monitor started making frying noises and cut off.  Dead in the water.  What a day!!
