Windows 7: need help getting rid of malware

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit SP1

You need to change all your passwords, using a known "clean" computer. Don't use the one that has/had the infection

See this article about Win32/Olmarik.AVQ trojan Cannot Uninstall Win32/Olmarik.AVQ - Win32/Olmarik.AVQ Virus Manual Removal | threatremoval

Win32/Olmarik.AVQ Description

Win32/Olmarik.AVQ is a destructive Trojan parasite which may occupy system resources and slow down computers. When infected by Win32/Olmarik.AVQ, you may find that certain files have gone missing from your hard disk or that your system is acting sluggish—or failing to start at all. You might even discover that Win32/Olmarik.AVQ can open up firewalls and allow remote hackers to access your computer without any permission or knowledge, which will enable the malicious hijackers to trace your web browser record and further steal your personal confidential information like credit card number and all kinds of passwords of your accounts. The problem with this stubborn virus is that there is no change/remove option in Add/Remove Programs. Win32/Olmarik.AVQ hides deep in registry entry and system files that pose a big threat to your PC and it’s necessary for you to terminate this bug quickly once detected.

many thanks to everyone for their support, will let you know if anything changes
You don't need Dr. Web CureIt by the way. It's already integrated into Hitman Pro.
