    The malware may have been removed but some of the changes it made may remain. Easiest way is to run a system restore to a date which predates the malware problem.

    If your restore was already to some point before the malware infection it may not achieve anything but you may already had problems of which you were not aware so it won't do any harm to try restore to an earlier point.

    the system restore is an optimum choice to go with once you stuck into the similar trouble .. but yes you have to see which of the date you want your system get back in time

    A system restore can help but some malware registry files will still reside on your system files which may activate the persistent malware again at a later time.
    If you have a clean image back up of your PC, that is the better solution. Restoration by image. I would like also to suggest using Super Anti-Spyware to scan your PC.

    I found a new software, AdwCleaner, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/, seems to be highly efficient. It mentions that it uses Ask Toolbar in order to work. However, I don't have Ask, I don't want anything I don't want, but the program seems to work. It doesn't install, it works as an independent .exe.

    Perhaps worth a try, eh?
