I am having a very difficult time removing ezula from a nt 4 box.
Every time I uninstall it, it reloads itself during the next logon.
I have ran Ad-aware, and Spybot Search and Destroy in combination with the ezula uninstall. Does anyone have any experience with the removal of this nasty adware program?

I have used PestPatrol, which seems to do the job. However, when a new user logged in, some of the spyware returned. But, another run of the PestPatrol would get rid of it.

You wouldn't happen to be using roaming user profiles would you?

From: Jim McCaw <jmccaw2003 () ucsd edu>
Yes, we are using roaming profiles.

Then that's why it's reloading every time you log in, pest patrol only cleans your local files, not the stuff on the server. Clean it again, then delete your profile stored on the server, when you log out it will save your clean profile to the server and you'll be aok.
