First a warning concerning the spyware that comes with Neoaudio: One of the spy/adware programs (I can't remember which) is such that if you try to uninstall it, the uninstaller will start deleting all files from that folder in which it has been installed, e.g. it will delete files from C:Program Files if it is installed in a folder named (for example) C:Program FilesNeoAudio ubbishevenmorerubbishspy.

Secondly: Does anyone know of any way to clean the system from said spyware? Spybot S&D or Adaware haven't been able to do it.
