Need to find out for sure if I'm infected or not...

Recently my computer was being used and the person using it got a popup message intimating a possible infection and the requirement for a scan. They had clicked one button, but stopped and called me over before they did anything else. I believe I killed the download in progress, but just have not felt entirely confident since that time. The popup referred to Best Antivirus 2011 and although it did show in the Firefox download area it was greyed out.

I have a Windows 7 Enterprise. Operating system. I currently run NOD32 antivirus and antispyware. I sent an email to ESET regarding my suspicions. ESET sent me a document that said I probably downloaded a new variant of the Virtumonde aka Vundo Trojan and gave me website links to read about the virus. They also sent me a list of several other things I should do.

I have gone through the process of starting the computer in safe mode with networking have run an ESET online scan. Have downloaded ESET's RogueAV cleaner and Malwarebytes, downloaded SuperAntiSpyware and CCleaner and used these to scan in normal Windows and reran a custom scan with NOD32 and reran Malwarebytes. I stopped just short of running ComboFix because I lack the experience to use this.

My computer does not run slow, I can use the internet and both Firefox and Internet Explorer, do not have popups and NOD32 continues to update and scan. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I'd like to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my system isn't infected. Today a suspicious communication was stopped with Adobe called payload123, which only heightens my suspicions. My K9 filter is also popping up with security blocks.

When I do scan with NOD32 though, it brings up the following during a scan

C:\hiberfil.sys - error opening [4]
C:\pagefile.sys - error opening [4]

Is someone able to help me in determining that my system has not been comprimised in any way. And if it is comprimised how do I fix it?
