    It is possible that some dropper program is replacing the malware as soon as it is removed by your security program. It would be better to use a program like Malwarebytes rather than trying to remove the files manually. In order to stop these malware files from contacting their sites to download further copies of the malware, see this thread Trustworthy Sites - By blocking access in and out of your PC to these malware sources, you can nip the infection in the bud.

    I have used spy hunter 4
    Malwarebytes
    Adaware
    Lavasoft registry tuner (extras inside)
    Advance System care Ultimate

    and a couple of others

    All except Spy hunter 4 tells me they are not there
