Hi antmez, first Welcone to bleepingcomputer ..
I do not use norton but am quite sure this will fix you up. Before you run these scans temporarily disable your Norton to avoid conflicts.
Install,update and scan with
Spybot-S&D , Tutorial: Using Spybot S&D
Then run Ad-Aware ,Tutorial: Using Ad-Aware
The above scans will have better results if run in Safe Mode
Next run this Online scan
Panda ActiveScan online virus scan

Please post back with results.

I don't want to be a PITA but :
IMPORTANT NOTE: Backdoor Trojans are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums. You should consider all your passwords to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. Do not change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breech.

Thank you and you're welcome antmez. Glad to hear it.
If you haven't done these already then:

Empty your Recycle Bin.
Next
Update your windows thru Windows Update

Next... To prevent accidentally Restoring your PC to a date when it was ill:
Create a new Restore Point:
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Then when Restore opens, select Create a new restore point and click Next
Give the the restore point a name like New and clean >Click Create

Then delete old Restore points:
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup > Click Ok.
Click the more options tab > notice System Restore > click clean up >Reboot

Now install SpywareBlaster 3.5.1 .


Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.


SpywareBlaster can help keep your system spyware-free and secure, without interfering with the "good side" of the web.
