    Okay if you are pretty sure that all this problems and issues are been caused by the virus program that are running on your pc then you should try to scan your pc with the a different anti-virus program that are there, I would suggest you to try that with the McAfee anti-virus program and scan you whole computer and then see if you get some different result , I would also like you to suggest to scan your pc with the latest update of the antivirus program .

    I would recommend you to download and install combo fix on your desktop and then turn off your anti-virus program or just disable it for the time while you are running this tool this tool might be blocked with the anti-virus program that you are using so disabling it would be a better option for you scanning this with the system with this as that might just delete the al the adware with this one and then again un-install after you are done with this.

    Thanks for the variety of the replies that you guys gave, I am very fortunate about the suggestion that you all gave me well some of them though did not work out for me , while the rest of that did work for me , the combofix suggestion that was given to me worked for me as it almost detected and removed every other Trojan virus that was seated at my hard-drive , well the rest of the suggestion al did helped me in a long run .
