A few days ago i got infected with AntiSpyware and some other malware. Unable to download and run any malware removal tools, I was able to burn some to a disk from another computer and then load it onto mine and run it. I used SuperAntiSpyware and it caught and removed alot of problems. I also ran MalwareBytes and it didn't find anything after that. I rebooted and the malware pop ups seemed to be gone but I am still having some problems.

First off, my computer will not pick USB drives up. I plug them in, my computer will indicate there's something in the slot by sound, but then the drive doesn't light up nor does it show up in My Computer. This thing scared the piss out of me so i want to back up some important files before i do anything else really.

Second, when I start my computer several windows titled "BlankWindow2" will pop up and then be titled "hello4" when minimized into the menu bar. My computer also seems to be running much much slower than before.

Any help is appreciated,
