Recently I was infected by the System Fix virus. I've been using this guide: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-system-fix

However, I cannot seem to get Rkill to work in any of it's file name incarnations, nor TDSS killer. I used the information at the bottom of the guide to manually delete the files associated with the infection. Since then, the overt symptoms of the virus have gone away (the fake alerts, the system tray icon etc). Unhide functioned, but parts of my Start Menu is still missing (Mostly the Right side with shortcuts to Windows such as "Games", "computer", "Network" etc).

I am also getting redirects to adsites when I attempt to use that computer to access this website via Google or Bing. In addition, if I leave my mouse still, small pop-ups boxes with the URLs to adsites keep popping up, despite no web browser being open. No actual ads display. Also, rkill and TDSSkiller still do not function.

All of this suggests to me I missed something, and I'm not certain how to proceed.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.

Also, I wasn't sure if this is the correct forum to post this, if it's not, I apologize.
