Welcome to bleepingcomputer aliboy66
Try theses first
I'll assume you are using XP or 2000.
Install AVG Antispyware, then run in SAFE MODE. How to start Windows in Safe Mode
This may take quite some time, an hour or so, depending on speed and infection
First go here and print out the instructions on install / scan with AVG

Be sure to check for the any updates to the programs after you install these.
Download and run ( formerly known as ewido) AVG Antispyware 7.5

Following these instructions Download and run Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4 (with out tea timer option)

Download and run SUPERAntispyware, free version Home User

Now Run Windows OneCare Live
Be sure to click ONLY on the grey box below the picture of a wrench “Full Service Scan”
Again this may take some time especially it it needs to defragment the drive.
Please post back with any questions and results
