    I would suggest you to use a tool called AdwCleaner which seems to be a lightweight and standalone removal tool for Adware, Toolbar, Hijacker, Spyware. It also remove PUPs/SIPA (potentially unwanted programs) annoying advertising by browsers. Often installing a free Software by downloading from the internet downloads Toolbar that gets installed automatically without our permission. These Toolbar is going to sneak in our web browser Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and it will remove all these nasties from out pc.

    If none of the above is working then you can try to download a "Live Rescue CD" which will be able to disinfest your computer without even booting into the infected operating system. After searching a bit on google I found out that Kapersky does have Free Live CD. So you can try to download that on other computer and burn it to a disc and then boot into it and perform an update and scan. This will be unaffected by the virus.
