Try running hijackthis. Also you could try looking in the registry for any remnants of it and delete them. Just make sure you know what you're deleting. As for the start up, you could try getting rid of that in MSCONFIG, or download winpatrol to stop it from coming up.

EDIT: Here's a removal tool: http://fix-computer-problem.com/rogu...antivirus.html You don't necessarily have to download it but you could try deleting the registry keys and files it says to delete.
