Hi, my computer was raided by a whole slew of viruses, trojans, and whatnots.

Apparently my pc had been attacked by the "worm.win32.netbooster" so I searched online and managed, through a yahoo answers forum, to remove it using Smitfraudfix and Bitdefender's online scan (on both Safe and Normal mode). That cleared the red background, unwanted icons on my desktop, the "virus alert" next to my clock, restored my Task Manager and Start Up Menu to normal, but I still continued to get popups about a Antispyware 2008 XP almost every second and had problems with my search engines (could not display antispyware sites and search results). By then I also cleared my System Restore and made a new Restore Point.

So I searched online for cures using my Opera browser after both Firefox and IE failed and downloaded CCleaner, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spyware Doctor, AVG, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and RogueRemover. After running everything and deleting all that was detected, I ran Bitdefender's online scan and Trendmicro Housecall.
Everything seems to be okay now with MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware detecting nothing except for some tracking cookies now and then.

However, I'm still a little skeptical as to whether my PC's completely safe for login to banking sites. Still worried that there may be keyloggers hidden somewhere.

Can anyone advise me what to do from here on? =x

Would you post the Malware bytes and Superantipyware logs. Determioning the current trustworthyness of the PC can be best known by what malware was in existence.
