IF it is still present after following those instructions, post a hijackthis log in that forum

There should be a special place in Hades reserved for malware makers who infect you then try to sell you a pig in a poke to repair their infection

ALternatively, you can also try this

1. GO to task manager->processes-> look through the processes, and end the process of this malware(This will remove the running of malware for now)

2. go to control panel-> add and remove programs-> and see if that malware has installed itself, if so, uninstall it

This may remove the malware. In any case, DO run a full system scan using Lavasoft to fix other infections
