I think that your anti-spyware is just doing it's regular job of removing this common Virtumonde problem. If you are not recieving any popups i don't think there is anything to worry about. Data miner cookies are relatively harmless and whenever you surf the net they will turn up. When you use Ad-Aware, is it able to clean these Virtumonde objects? Do you have any paths names of the file it is finding? You may like to try a scan in safe mode. You can do this by pressing the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer
beep when you reboot it (some versions of windows will display 'Starting Windows' with a grey progress bar)
you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode. You may have a better success rate there.
