I have not been able to get rid of this spyware. I purchased two programs
already that were supposed to remove it but they didn't work. Can anyone
please help?

You should not have to purchase anything. Spymaxx is a rogue antimalware
program, one that pretends to be a Good Guy but is really Evil. Look for
removal steps here:

Install and run Spybot Search & Destroy in Safe mode.
All info below!

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.5.2 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

Important re: Safe Mode
If you happen to find a problem that you can’t uninstall / delete, reboot
the computer, and go into Safe Mode.
To get into Safe mode, tap F8 right at Power On / Startup, and use UP arrow
key to get to Safe Mode, then hit ENTER.
RESCAN your computer with your Anti-virus and Spybot S & D while in Safe Mode.
