    Malwarebytes is not enough, you need to follow the complete directions as per hungry man.

    Alternatively, follow these directions, mostly by bleeping computer,here: Annoyances-Resolved: How To Remove XP Antivirus 2012 Virus For Free

    Let us know if the problems reapper after you have done ALL the steps, not just the Malwarebytes scan. Thanks!

    System restore (from F8) saved me from this virus, got infected from visiting the laptopvideo2go site.

    MalwareBytes (MBAM) and RKill are both free. The appdata folder is in:
    C:\Users\*USERNAME*\AppData\

    I believe.

    Go into local, locallow, roaming and pretty much delete whatever isn't recognizable to you.

    RKill will remove some registry entries. MBAM should find some files. Run TDSS Killer too since it can install a rootkit.

    I would cut your losses backup and quarantine your imortant data, Re-install windows and start fresh then run a decent AV on your backed up data. If it isnt safely hard backed up you may have to lose some of it.
