BC has a self-help removal guide for Surfsidekick:

However, if you are not confortable with being able to follow the steps listed there, you can certainly submit a HJT log to our volunteer staff of experts who can guide you through the removal process; follow the instructions found here:

As a side note to add to John's instructions, you might like to remove both Doctor Alex and Spyware Terminator from your computer. This is because they are rogue programs, and are not as reputable as others you have install such as Ewido. They are both listed on the "Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites" which can be found at the following link:
http://spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

Click on start, then control panel, and then double-click on add/remove programs. From within add/remove program uninstall the two programs.
