Unfortuntely this rouge spyware removal programme installed while web browsing( Active X?)

Now problem is:
1: I have no desktop icon visible
2: I could only see two short cut to access that website which ask money to install this programme
3: I can only start Internet explorer (8 beta) which also giving me message' Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to shutdown'
4:Firefox just got disabled
5: I think it just enter itself to StartUP programme utility-so start up automaticaly when windows start up & cause desktop disable


Is there any good online virus removal programme which can help to remove this spyware/malware?
I have AVG8 already istalled on my computer

Many Thanks
