Spybot search and rescue always finds "right media" what is that?

I basically only go on yahoo answers, and other harmless sites. What is right media and how can i get rid of it once and for all?

    Your OK;

    Right Media, Inc. is an online advertising company that operates the Right Media Exchange (RMX), a marketplace that enables advertisers, publishers, and ad networks to efficiently trade digital media. Technology providers develop services for the Exchange via APIs. Right Media also operates an online ad network called Remix Media, and allows free access to the exchange for small publishers via its Direct Media Exchange service. Right Media's customers include Yahoo! (also an investor)and Fox Interactive Media.

    On 30 April 2007, Yahoo! announced the acquisition of Right Media.

    Right Media appears as Spyware in the program Spybot - Search and Destroy

    Contrary to any other claims, Right Media will not allow itself to be removed. Right Media leaves a file in your computer registry which reconnects and reloads Right Media as soon as you access the Internet. It is considered malware for that reason.
