i agree with the advice above, but i suggest to also get a-squared FREE:
a-squared Free - Free of charge Anti-Virus, Anti-Trojan, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Dialer and Anti-Worm Software - Freeware!

it has better detection rate then malwarebytes, so run both and see what they find.

Microsoft Security Essentials would be a good choice as well.

If the first removes the evilware then it won't be there for the second to find.

No harm in scanning again and again!

Yeah I thought about scanning only and not "fixing" the first go around after I posted that.

Well, even if you fix it the first time, a second scan is good in case of some really nasty malware that moves itself around and refuses to be deleted (have seen it happen)

Thanks, all. Deleted all Temp folders and ran Malware program as suggested - reported 7 hits which I deleted. Also removed a suspicious entry from my Firewall permissions.
Now, we'll see...
