A pretty good spyware/malware/virus remover is Spybot Search and Destroy. It’s free. Unfortunately, I would stress this: stay off the internet, don’t even have your wireless card or ethernet cable in your computer until the viruses are gone. They can do silent downloads and installs of other malware. Google Spybot Search and Destroy, download it, turn off your wireless card/unplug your ethernet cable, run the scan. You will need to restart your computer and scan at least another 2 times. Good luck on your system.
Spybot is one of the best but there are a few that I does not handle. After running spy-boy download and run this
It might help to run the program in “safe mode” (press “F8″ as the systemk is starting and select “safe mode” from the menu when it appears – more info here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222 ).
As stated in the previous answer, <b>disconnect the infected system from the internet</b>. download the installer on another machine, as well as any sigtnature files, then burn these to a CD and install on the infected machine from that. If you use a USB drive instead of a CD you risk infecting the USB drive.
Do an online anti-virus scan from a reputable source like <a href=”http://www.sophos.com/products/free-tools/sophos-threat-detection-test.html”>Sophos</a>. You need to purchase a good antivirus program and use it and keep it updated! Be sure to keep your Windows updates up to date also. It is possible/likely that your system is so infected that you will not recover it. Many of the compromised files get put into system restore points and it is very difficult to clean these out. If you are spending more than 4-8 hours on trying to clean the computer, it is in your best interest to save off the data files that you can (Word, Excel, photos etc.) and reformat the system.

I use Yahoo tools for the purpose and find it quite effective. only thing is you have to run it frequently.
I have recently had a similar issue with my mobile workstation. Spybot Search and Destroy DID NOT eliminate all threats, and I am still working on fixing my registry. Kaspersky AntiVirus has been the best so far almost immediately identifying and eliminating the majority of the threats prior to running a scan. I do suggest Kaspersky, however it does cost money. I would also suggest running a tool like CCleaner and Wise Registry Cleaner. CCleaner will get rid of a bunch of junk and permanently delete infected files removed to the recycle bin (up to 35 passes). Wise Registry Cleaner will (as the name implies) scan your registry for faulty keys and fix them.
Spybot is not always the best answer; be sure to always get the latest updates.
There is only one solution for any virus related problems of the computer system. This is to install a full licensed antivirus software in your computer and perform a full system scan to scan every area in your computer system. I am pretty much sure that it would work as long as you will do this remedy.
When a certain spyware program has successfully entered your computer system. It is realy hard to remove it without using an antivirus or an antispyware software. In your case, you can recover your system by using an effective antispyware software and perform a full system scan.
