Run these online virus scanners:

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

If the above doesn't help rid you of the problem, then:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Always avoid downloading helper applications, toolbars, and fun/pretty/happy applications without first carefully researching them using Google. According to one site, you should be able to remove all associated applications by using the ad/remove programs function in your control panel:

Before using the internet, run AVG in safe mode and have it do a complete hard drive scan; let it quarantine any malware it finds (you can delete the quarantined items later). Then use the internet, and if something happens, please tell us EXACTLY what happens, precisely WHEN it happens, and what the AVG popup says.
