Running Windows XP Professional SP3

My computer has been infected with the West Yorkshire police Ukash virus. When booted normally, the machine presents a screen demanding payment for illegal activity.

I managed to start in safe mode with networking and disabled all my startup items.
This enabled me to start normally
I downloaded and ran Malawarebytes Anti-Malaware Trial, this found and deleted

I realise now that I should have asked for help before doing anything

It deleted

Folders Detected: 1
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\hellomoto (Trojan.Ransom.FGen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Files Detected: 3
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Downloads\SaveAs.exe (Affiliate.Downloader) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\hellomoto\TujP.dat (Trojan.Ransom.FGen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\hellomoto\BukF.dat (Trojan.Ransom.FGen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully

Currently I am still running with the startup items disabled

As I use my computer for Internet Banking I am worried I may have other infections on my machine

Any help greatly appreciated
