Glad you succeeded with the help of Mr Freeze. My question: do you have any antivirus running on your computer after all the removals? If not, please install one.
I do suggest you follow what The Skeptic said
Having no antivirus running will just get you infected and in a big mess.
If you don't have one install one.
Take a look at the link below for some recommendations.

avg is not what it used to be
here are some firewalls
comodo is the better one
Zone alarm caused a big upset with microsoft update
for a spyware scanner
you could try SuperAntiSpyware 4.15.1000

So anyway, I got up this morning, and tried again, and it still said "ips...." so I googled that exact phrase, and I learned that it was just a simple matter of actually "refreshing" it a couple of times, and it worked! Man. do I feel silly!
BTW, to The Skeptic, I do have Ad-Aware 2008....is this good enough? Or is it "the more the merrier" when it comes to virus protection?

Take a look at the link I posted earlier in the posts.
It gives a nice overview on the categories and good recommendations.

Adware and Spybot gives itself a a bad rep by removing .EXE files making your computer useless
i dont use or have these programs ....so dont recommend them...they are not user friendly...but thats your choice
yes you should have
a crap cleaner is good
you should defragment your harddrive
from the start button
Start/Run/ dfrg.msc /click ok
heres something else you could do to tune up your system a bit
try doing a chkdsk /r
Start/run/ chkdsk /r /click ok
notice the space between the k and the /
At the command prompt type the letter y press enter
chkdsk cannot run at this time...another volume is using it
restart your computer....
