Windows XP Home SP 3

Hello - I, like others have inadvertently downloaded malware which was included with some free software. (I've learned my lesson!) This particular product is called 'Funmoods'. I think I have removed most of it, however; it is still listed in Firefox about:config keyword listing, although not as the default any longer. I would like all traces of it gone. Also, I suspect there are other problems because my 2007 word operation freezes, etc. I'd like some help running some thourough scans with analysis to clean up this mess. I purchased a new Windows 7 computer and I don't want to transfer infected files to my new machine.

Thank you very much in advance!
