Thank you for the information, but I was asking which of the two guides I posted was better. I will just try one and see how it goes, I will let you know how things work.

Only one of those you listed mention using Eset as does the guide here at BC. I know that Eset does remove Poweliks.
So, you got the best advice in the first answer to your question.
Poweliks is capable of doing lots of bad stuff. You will need to do more than just remove poweliks to clean the crud that
You're not a spammer are you?

While ESET Tool is mainly used to remove the basic infection, there is also a good Symantec (Norton) tool that I run second as a check only.
Your links lead to "ComboFix" and other programs that should NOT be used in these cases, as they will "brick" your system if not used correctly.
We are more than happy to assist any person (free of charge) in the correct methods to remove and clean-up after this problem. .....

For this reason your links were removed.
Posting referral links to non-Bleeping Computer malware removal guides is NOT permitted with the exception of well known security vendors like Kaspersky, ESET, Symantec, etc which sometimes release specialized fix tools with instructional documentation. This is because there are far too many untrustworthy and scam sites which mis-classify detections or provide misleading information and poor removal advice. It is impractical for our staff to monitor and review all such guides for accuracy, therefore, we will not permit members helping others to refer to any of them.
