Windows 7: Aggravating window and a passive virus

Aggravating window and a passive virus

so awhile ago me and a buddy were playing Need for Speed World Online and I walked away to use the bathroom. When I came back he jumped away from my desk and there was a window open on my laptop. The window was called Password recovery, so i thought nothing of it. I closed the window than suddenly command prompt opened and showed what look like scrolling code. It was to fast so i couldn't read it. When it was done command prompt closed and a window opened than my task bar disappeared. i cant close the window but the title of it is Openbit. I tried to use Task Manager and it gave me an error saying it was restricted by the Administrator, but I'm the only user on the laptop. I figured that part out and can solve the Task Manager issue myself. I've tried restoring my system to an update from 2 weeks, a month, all the way back to when i bought and boot up the computer for the first time but nothing changed. How can I get rid of this virus? i cant seem to find what he downloaded to give me this.

EDIT* When i restored it said it failed to load previous registry so the virus is messing with it. Just can't figure out how to get rid of it.
