kill and clean

I have just been infected by an " anti-virus" adware type. It's called 'kill and clean' and consists of a red box on the right hand side that keeps popping up warning of viruses.

Since I have been infected my pc is much slower and ad-aware and avg virus scan do not work, (they freeze at a certain point.

Thanks guys.

System restore did the job. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

Although system restore worked for you, I would still scan with AVG, asquared, panda online scan at least to make sure that there'ain't nuffin hiding'

Yes. I tried that with avg.

Tell me, when avg scan finds a virus, does it automatically delete it or do I have to do something?
