First, Clear the TIF's and empty the recycle bin:

Also…empty your Recycle bin.

Then do the following:

****WARNING ****; Backup all documents and files before removing any spyware!!

Most importantly, download install and run CWShredder here
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3019.html
or here
http://www.trendmicro.com/cwshredder/
and About Buster, which searches for hidden .dlls that recreate the malware.
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4289.html
Then visit these two sites to test for parasites and help basic cleaning:
On-Line Check
http://aumha.org/a/noads.htm
and
Quick-Fix Protocol.
http://aumha.org/a/quickfix.php
Basically, throw everything here at your “infection”.

Then download, install and immediately update these three programs before
running:
AdAware SE - Update immediately after installing

http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/s...re/default.mspx

Next, do an Online scan here (if possible) -

Make sure that you choose “fix” or “clean”.

Download Pocket Killbox from
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe
and put it on the desktop where you can find it easily

Download, install, and run HiJackThis - it is one of the most important
tools to help clean your system of scumware. Follow the instructions
carefully:
