    Open the main SpyBot page
    Click on "Immunize" in the left pane.
    This will allow SpyBot to automatically block the recognized threats.
    It can be set to "alert" you of to do it in the background.
    Since you are not wanting to see it.....go for the background.

    You might have some spyware hidden too. Run HighJackThis to see if it's lurking there.
