Unhappy Roaming folder dll Virus - PLEASE HELP!

Hello, I know this isn't Hardware per se, but I need some help.

Let me begin by saying I have Windows Vista, 32 Bit, Antivirus is Avast! Home.
I was browsing the web today, looking at Geek furniture, (Honestly. I run a blog for geeks) and my Antivirus warned me when I visited a particular page, that a threat was found. I'm not sure if this was the cause, or if the problem was already there. Here's what's going on:

After my computer slowing down VERY NOTICEABLY, on any program or process, I decided to reboot. When it started back up, it gave me the following error: "C:\Users\Aaron\Appdata\Roaming\Forfilesd.dll - Cannot be loaded, has a virus." So the first thing I did, was shut my computer off once again, and run System Restore. Not sure if that was the best thing to do, but it's been done. I restored it to two days ago, and rebooted. The same file error came up. So then I ran my Antivirus, specifically into the Roaming folder, and it came up clean. Now the dll file is currently in the Virus Chest of my Avast, and thus why I believe the Roaming folder came up clean. But my system is slowing to a crawl, and it is (of course) giving me the same error that the dll cannot be loaded every time I reboot. It is reading it as a Windows32 Malware-Gen. How do I fix this? How do I restore the file? Please help!

Before you run anything disable the restore points. A lot of nasty critters hide out there. When you roll back the system it's business as usual for them. Then run combofix followed by stinger. Google for stinger.
