Really desperate for help.

I've downloaded every bit of anti-spyware software I can find, and followed the instructions from various forums butI'm still having the same problem.

Basically I have four items in my favourites that shouldn't be there. The ubiquitous 'Seven days of free ****', 'Only sex website', 'Search the web' and a folder called 'Sites about' full of typical spam.

Every time I load up Explorer, the task bar reverts to about: blank and my AVG keeps alerting me to all sorts of Trojans, which are installing themselves on my computer. I've disabled it for the sake of this exercise.

I've tried everything and I'm desperate for help. Could anybody help me out? I'd genuinely really appreciate it.
