i ran my avg detailed complete scan,then ran avg anti-rootkit both with a clean bill of health.i then ran spy doctor (trial version) witch told me i have 4 threats 10 infections and a worm sohanad but to repair/delete i have to reg/pay for the full version.is this a good idea or should i just take it in to the man

No need to take it to the man.
Download and install the free version of super antispyware.Do a scan with this as it's about the best you can get. Lots of people here recommend it.It will find and remove whatever you have for free.

P.s.
Lots of trial free versions give false positives just to make you buy them.
This may explain why spy doctor found what it did.

You can get a free version of Spyware Doctor.Maybe someone will post it on here for you.I always found S/Doctor an excellent program.This looks like it.click here

cheers mrwoowoo and buteman have eventualy down loaded both s/d and super a/spy ran both.super antispy detected just one threat but spy/doc came up with the same results as above,but this time went further ie cleaned n delete so at this time avg7,avgrootkit,spy/doc,super a/spy all agree on a clean machine (so can i breath a sigh of relief)
