If you had all things you quoted running on your PC and it still got infected. Look at my list...

Avast (free version) click here
Spyware Terminator Version 2.3 (Free) Ignore the big yellow download button. Scroll to the bottom of the page and get version 2.3 click here
ASHAMPOO FIREWALL (free) click here
MalWareBytes (free) click here

Yes all free.I use AVG but those that know better say Avast is the best.I am not that keen on Avast it takes to long to do a full scan And as soon as it finds something it stops until you tell it what to do.No good if you go out and expect the scan to be finished when you get back in.
Avira is the up and coming one and is quite popular.
But like I said the ones that know say Avast.
