I hope you had your data backed up on DVD or another hard drive. If you look at the Forum index, the 'Virus, Spyware and Trojan Removal' section has 3.2x more posts than the second most busy area. In my reading there I've seen some excellent advice offered and plenty of happy posters who managed to get their systems mostly sorted. However, even if the system is clean of malware and viruses, the OS may well be malfunctioning in any number of interesting ways. Rather than spend hours or more sorting it out, I'd choose the overwrite the entire HDD and perform a clean install of Windows.

Note: the last sentence above should not be taken as a blanket recommendation, but it is an option in specific cases.
