Don't do it yet. Here's what I recommend:

1. Download other spyware/antivirus programs.
1a. Install COMODO antivirus
1b. Install COMODO anti-spyware
1c. Install Spybot Search & Destroy
2. Update them
3. Boot up into Safe Mod
3a. Run these programs

If problem continues:
1. You could use a System Restore to bring back your computer to an earlier stage. You must remember the latest date before this accident.

If problem continues:
1.Reinstall Windows

Oh I'm sorry. It's the firewall. It will get rid of spyware for you.
