I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.
If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

This guide created by Artellos, Staff Expert, is awesome. It helped speed up the process of my parents and my computer unbelievably. I highly recommend it.
You should get a clean bill of health from the malware guys first...don't just rely on this guide to solve your problems.
Hope that helps.
