The Microsoft Safety Brochure can be downloaded/viewed at http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/protect-pc.aspx on the web. About.Com has some safety tips at http://antivirus.about.com/od/securitytips/a/safetytips.htm on the web. Also visit the ClamWin antimalware page at http://www.clamwin.com/content/view/197/106/ on the web.

Its kinda old, but just wanna share. If you download a lot, why don't you test it first using virustotal.com? Would be safer that way. I always do that, and rarely got infected. If you found the files suspicious, better leave it.

Good advice. The ClamWin main page also has an Anti-malware menu item that shows some helpful links for virus removal and checking.

You can try these two methods, your problem will definitely will be solved:-

Method 1 – Perform A System Restore

System restores are a good way to get rid of light malware and spyware programs. They require no downloading of any software and can be performed directly by Windows.

System restores work best if you catch the intrusion right away. But, you do not want to do a system restore if you believe that you have had malware, spyware, or viruses on your computer for any significant amount of time.

This could cause you to lose files, applications, or data. To do a system restore in Windows, navigate to the control panel using the path Start > Control Panel. Click the Recovery icon located within the Control Panel and hit the Open System Restore button on the next screen.

The rest of the process is very straightforward as the Windows Wizard will guide your through it.

Method 2 – Scans

There are thousands of different programs out there in the spyware/virus removal category, many of which are free. The thing to remember is that different virus removal programs will bring different results; and none of them are 100% completely accurate.

For example, you can scan your computer with one virus removal program, remove the viruses… then turn around a scan your computer with a different program, which will catch even more viruses that the first program didn’t pick up.

However, you do not want to stack tons of virus removal programs on top of each other. Doing so can actually throw off effectiveness. One good antivirus scanner should be enough.

This topic is 2 years old. I am sure the OT has solved his issue out. Too bad I wasn't registered at the time, I could have helped him greatly. Oh well, I am sure he knows what he is doing by now.
