My laptop was infected by Windows Vista Recovery.

I found and followed the following instructions:

I was still getting google redirects so I ran TDSSKiller and they have now stopped.

Except now I still have an icon on my desktop labelled "Windows Vista Restore".

I tried running a full scan with Malware and it comes up with no infections.

Where do I go from here?

You can safely delete it.
