Got DNS Unlocker adware, need help!

Hello! A couple of days ago Iíve downloaded some new games, and with them, DNS Unlocker sneaked on my PC. I immediately removed the virus by using this article: How to remove DNS Unlocker (updated), but today it appeared again. Probably, I incorrectly executed instructions, that were in the article, or I am just stupid, creating problems for myself, using untrusted sites = (Please tell me what can I do to clean my computer from DNS Unlocker. Except that, can somebody tell me, are the disposal methods described in this article useful or not? Maybe I just have followed the wrong directions =) I am waiting for your answers, please help me while my PC is still alive.
