I recommend you follow the steps below:
1.) Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
Let it scan your system for files to remove.
Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
Press OK to remove them.
2.) Run a couple of on-line scans.
Trend Micro's online virus scanner
3.) Please download/install/update/configure and perform a scan with Spybot Search & Destroy and AdAware.
Follow all the instructions in the following tutorials:
Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer
Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers
You could also run the Ad-aware and Spybot scans within safe mode. Additional instructions on how to do this can be found here: How to start Windows in Safe mode.

Symantec Security Response suggests that if your Symantec antivirus product detects Hacktool (or variations such as Hacktool.Spammer or Hacktool.Flooder) that you just delete it. If you see a message that it cannot be deleted, it may be running in memory. In this case, restart the computer in Safe mode, run a full system scan, and delete the threat when it is detected. All Windows 32-bit operating systems, except Windows NT, can be restarted in Safe mode. For instructions on how to do this, read the document How to start the computer in Safe Mode.

Anything you scan and remove will be one more thing our team of expert volunteers (such as Joshuacat) don't have to instruct you to remove. It makes the whole process more efficient if you remove as much as you can before posting.
