Use the free Super Antispyware to remove the malware Windows antivirus.
http://www.superantispyware.com/ Run the scan in Safe Mode after installing in normal mode. Allow it to remove whatever it finds.
Post the log from SAS.

Obtain the SuperAntiSpyware log as follows:
Click on 'Preferences'.
Click on the 'Statistics/Logs' tab.
Under 'Scanner Logs' double click on 'SuperAntiSpyware Scan Log'.
It will then open in your default text editor,such as Notepad.

I recommend that you run another scan with SAS in 2 or 3 days. The reason is that the malware attempts to hide from
security programs by constantly changing file names, etc. SAS updates almost daily.

When you are sure you have gotten rid of the malware completely, delete all "system restore points".
Clean up your temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. The simplest, easiest way to do that is by using a program such as
Ccleaner. During the install of Ccleaner you will be offered the Yahoo Toolbar. UNcheck if NOT wanted.
