Hi,

I think you may well still be infected.
If you download an antivirus while you're already infected, the results of a scan are probably not 100% reliable.

Go to Trend Micro HouseCall , and have your computer scanned on line.

Also do this:

Download Startup.log from this site: http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Toys.html

It generates a text file on your desktop that will list all the applications that start in the many places when you start Windows.
We don't need to see StubPath.txt, just StartupLog.txt

This may well help us further.

Good luck,
