Hello and welcome. You could use that method,but NOT on your own. It requires a HiJackThis log posted in that forum. You should not run and use HiJackThis without supervision. An error there can cause the PC to become inoperable.

We can do some things here to fix this also. Please tell us your Operating ststem,XP,Vista etc..
your Antivirus and spyware tools so we can proceed.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Tell them to register and we will gladly walk them thru it. The other option for them is a full format and reinstall of the Operating System.
