help with click.linksynergy.com tracking cookie removal

I've had this thing on my machine for a while and have read through the FAQs here and used spybot and adaware (both with updated definitions). Anyway, I tried to edit it out of my hosts file, but whenever I see a url link in a thread page (here or anywhere) the link is replaced with a click.linksynergy.com.......

I'm not sure if it's just a cookie or more of a spyware thing, but it's been a bitch to remove. My google searches didn't come up with much.

Anyone know how to remove it? Thanks

it's still there. all the info. I've found is that it's in the host file.....but my host file is empty, so it can't be there. I have downloaded all sorts of free spyware tools, but nothing can seem to find it. I also read that it has something to do with a p2p program, but removing it didn't do any good. Any ideas or anyone at least have any experience with this?

tried that already. thanks anyway.


any utility that claims to fix it then requires you to purchase it and then "maybe" it will actually be able to do so. the threads discussing it date back to 2003, so the fix shouldn't be too difficult. shit salad!
