With that number of problems that accumulated over time, it will take some effort and thoroughness to clean them out. Begin first with updating and running your resident Anti-virus (best to do this in Safe Mode); allow it to quarantine everything it finds. Post in the Am I Infected Forum anything it finds that it CANNOT quarantine.
The next step is to download, install, and update several anti-spyware applications. Ad-AwareSE, Spybot Search and Destroy, and AVG Anti-spyware are all free and extremely good at finding bad files. Run them one at a time in Safe Mode, and allow them to quarantine everything they find. Again, report back with anything they are unable to get rid of.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
