While I didn't post a topic myself here, (though I was about to) I was able to read through previously answered topics of people who were suffering from the same virii that I was. By using the tools referenced in those threads from a number of posters, I was able to successfully remove the aforementioned problems.
This is just a quick note to say thanks to all the staff and users who posted in those threads that enabled me to get my computer clean (at least as far as I know) again.
[Edit:] Since it was a number of people that helped me, I donated $10 to the site itself rather an any individual person.
