I am plagued with a horrible spyware-virus-worm thing that has put itself deep into my computer.  I think infected memory, but not really sure whats going on.  Heres the deal.....

This program icon shows up on my desktop: INSTANT ACCESS but it also calls itself Access Control, and I have found it in my program files and also in windows files.  When I run McAffee, it finds it and calls it Dialer-184 which has to be the same thing because its the only thing I am having problems with.

If my computer is left running idle, the program "blooms" open and the next thing I know there are 9 running programs (all Instant Access) which are openning pages on internet explorer all by itself.

I have run webroots Spy Sweeper in safemode, and it no longer finds it.  When I run McAffee, it finds it and deletes it.  When I go back into normal running mode, its a matter of an hour or so and it comes back again.  Then Spysweeper detects it, I delete it.... a cycle I can not seem to fix.  I have followed numerous threads on this subject and called several tech supports but nothing has solved it.

Does anyone know how to fix this horrible mess?

Thank you.
