"Spyware" re-installing itself?!?

Today I was sent this link via AIM by someone on my buddy list, and after opening it, this program Buddylinks was installed. I realized the same message I got was sent to people on my buddy list. I noticed there was a new program callled, so I deleted it. An hour later, the program was re-installed, so I deleted it again and ran Ad-Aware. There was a registry file for it, so I deleted that, thinking it was over. Now I just realized the program is back again. Any ideas on how to permanantely delete it? Thanks.

Try spybot. I've seen instances where one of the 2 would remove a program better than the other.

As posted before, use Spy-bot and use the immunize feature; that should stop it reinstalling itself.
