You could try the long way round which is to search for each of the files
you list in Google, then see if there are any free removal tools around -
often there are. The big caveat to that is that often the 'removers' are
supplied by the people who distributed the original (or by some other
malicious group) and you can get yourself in even deeper trouble.
The crude reality (as The Register pointed out the other day) is that the
average time to infection for a computer that is not completely secured is
now under fifteen minutes. Somewhere in your arsenal of security tools there
is a chink. If you're using Windows in-built firewall, that is certainly one
place where there could be a gap. As we computer experts say, 'Windows
firewall is rubbish' - that's a technical term.
If you rely on your computer as much as I do, then I think this is the place
I would spend more money than any other. I use Bit Defender Internet Suite
2008 - it has excellent antivirus, a very robust firewall and anti-spam and

Spybot Search and Destroy, AVG Free - but note that AVG now gets terrible
reviews by most security firms. In essence, you get what you pay for.

offered AntiSpyware 2008, but reported a problem half way through and could
Note that AntiSypware 2008 is not a real application:
It's a piece of spyware..
Ad-Aware should take care of this
Nothing found by Google
My only suggestion is to get decent antivirus and spyware software, install
and update. Disconnect from the Net and so complete system scans and cleans
until you're done.
