Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808 and I will be helping you today.

First I need you to read and install the files HERE.
Follow the recommended configurations,settings and updates for each applications.

RUN in the following order in Safe Mode:
1. Run Ad-Aware
2. Run CWShredder
3. Run Spybot S&D
4. Run CleanUp at least twice

Even the best antispyware programs are only able to remove about 70% of infections. Also, the line between spyware and trojans is getting blurred. You can never be too careful with these, I recommend at least one online scan.

Now, REBOOT in Normal Mode and have an On-line scan at this sites: Trend Micro or Panda Scan.
Also try Trojan Scan

REBOOT again.
