Install Spybot Search and Destroy click here and run it without delay. It will search out all these nasties and destroy them for you. Be careful, it has to be used with care but it will guide you as to waht is safe to get rid of.
After that, install Spywareblaster click here to stop it happening again. You could install AdAware as well. click here
There is no need to do a system restore just follow the instructions from the website that PSF highlighted. In spite of the increasingly hysterical tone on the site LOP will not trash your HD, get you sent to Sing-Sing or make your neighbours shun you. It does no real harm and is easy to remove.
You have no nee to worry about security. There is no chance of getting hacked and most viruses are merely annoying not harmlful. Keep your AV and firewall (no matter which ones as they all seem to be good) up to date and surf on regardless.
If you are using Kazaa or similar you do open your computer to all sorts of infected files though...you have been warned.
