Backdoor:Win32/Prosti.L

hello.
i downloaded a quake 4 keygen, (yes i know illegal and my own fault) but i got a virus when i downloaded it. i have microsoft security essentials and it told me to remove it imediatly. so i did. but wen i booted up my computer today it was slow, i mean as in after it started up my start menu took a long time to show icon images and my computer has slowed down a little bit. can someone please help. if mse told me to remove it does that mean its gone and im just too worried about it and going crazy or is it still possibly there. if so how can i remove it? i ran mse today and threats were detected and i also ran spyware doctor and no threats were detected. so would it be gone? please help.
i guess this is what you get for trying to download illegal stuff off the internet. lol. thanks

    I hope you've learned your lesson and don't try it again. Quake 4's cheap as anything anyway!

    Try malware bytes.

    It would be a good idea to run a virus scan without booting up the possibly infected OS.
    You can do that with a bootable CD/Virus scanner. The AVG rescue is a good option.
    AVG Rescue CD: http://www.avg.com/us-en/226386

    You can also try running the Malicious Software Removal Tool from Microsoft. Type MRT into the Start menu search bar.
    (always run the system in Safe Mode while you do scans).
