Default Virus.

So I was on limewire looking for Elbow's song and Found it, seemed to be good to go, clicked on it and it asked me to update the codec and like a noob i clicked yes and installed, seconds later i was like ''oh no '' then after i restarted my pc and it was kinda slow but not by much.. when i search anything in google with I.E it gives me on the top of the page a warning sign saying blah blah virus blah, spyware i'm guessing.. followed by a youtube link to porn! but ofc highlighting the picture you can clearly see its not a gate to a youtube site so i'm guessing more spyware.

Ran SpyBot (fully updated) Ran AVG Fee 7.5 (fully updated) and its still here, any ideas? (Zone Alarm is also installed and up to date)

EDIT: After AVG Free was run it found nothing but one trojane fakeadd, im guessing thats it but after it found it nothing changed :S

reformat of the hard drive!!
to ensure the virus is fully gone, unless you intend to back up your file and some got infected.
