Try using your Security programs in safe mode.[just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts.]If they find anything delete them when finished run C Cleaner then switch of system restore.Reboot computer then run your security programs again to see if they find anything.

Ccleaner here click here

Some antispyware programs; click here AVG and Spywareterminator would be a good start. Install and update them, reboot your PC, as buteman said hit F8 when your computer is starting, before you see the Windows logo. Choose Safe mode, run a complete scan with both applications.
