Hello all, This is my first post here, I would just like to say first, a big Thank You to everybody with this site as Ive been troubleshooting many computer problems with the help of this site throughout the past years.
Ive never ran into any kind of malware/spware as horrible as this one. Ive been battling this for a little over a week now and cant seem to fix it...

Down to the subject now, Ive been infected with this Security Toolbar 7.1 and all the other junk that comes along with it - ex. This yellow "caution" looking sign blinking all the time in the bottom right of the taskbar popping up various windows saying:
"System performance monitor: Warning..."
"Security Alert: Spyware found - im infected with the last versions of PSW.x-Vir trojan...."
"System Alert: [email protected]"

I also get these 3 popups all the time with the addition of random popups:

If you would also notice on that screenshot picture, the Windows I-face looks like it is set on the Classic windows look setting instead of the modern winXP look, but ive checked the settings and its set on the Default Windows Xp look, which I dont understand... this happend a few days ago after cleaning my registry with CCleaner I want to say, not 100% sure about this, ive been doing all kinds of stuff to this comp. trying to get this off...

Ive read through other threads about the "Security Toolbar 7.1" and removing it...
Ive tried the "SmitfraudFix" and followed instructions with that.. didnt work
Ive tried the "roguefix_2.102.bat" fix, followed instruction.. didnt work
Ive tried the "CCleaner" registry cleaner after the rogue fix..

Ive downloaded and Fully Scanned my comp. with the following programs:
-AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
-Latest version of SuperAntiSpyware

with no luck fixing the problem.
