System Defender, Virus Alert [RESOLVED]

Since a virus infected my computer, there are lots of pop-ups that offer me to install System Defender Pro 2008 or Virus Removal. I read one of the threads with similar problem (http://www.geekstogo...us-t191002.html) and I already followed a few instructions from the aforementioned topic. I installed SmitfraudFix and run it in the Safe Mode. After that, message "virus alert" in the right corner of the taskbar disappeared. But the problem still persists.

My display properties are still disabled, and I can't access Control Panel and Disk D:/ normally because the virus made it hidden. I can only access it via start menu/run which means that everything is still OK but it's just hidden.

I also downloaded Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) as said in previous thread, and ran it. DSS recognized that I don't have HijackThis and it offered me to install it, but the virus prevented download of HijackThis.

Virus also blocks my computer from accessing this site. (I'm using another computer at the moment)

The results of DSS scan (main and extra) are in the attachment.

Thank you for any help.
