Trojan Horse Collected AF preoblem please help remove

Ok so apparently someone hijacked a trusted freinds instant messenger screen name sent me an link in the IM window I clicked on it thinking it was my freind and AVG pops up and says a virus was found. So I quarantined it and though I was safe. When I restarted my computer I keep getting AVG poping up telling me the same viurus has been detected and then a website tries to automatically open in IE. I have treid all sorts of spyware scans and they always find Toolbar888 and I remove it and it keeps coming back. I run a virus scan and the same Trojan horse keeps coming back after i delete it. Please help I can figure out how to get rid of this thing. This is the first virus ive ever been infected with I am generally very careful about spyuware and viruses. Any ideas??

  1. Try this site:
    http://www.scanspyware.net/info/Toolbar888.htm

    If you don't want to install their software, it gives a list of registry keys and program files to delete at the bottom of the page, so you can do it manually.
  2. I got it working, I had to do spyware, virus and hijack this scans in safe mode and remove the virus and spyware it seems to be fine now.
