I finally found a solution for this, if your computer is still suffering with do the following: -

visit and download "Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta 1" or directly visit: -

Once installed and running, make sure to block any Unknown "IE BHOs" in the Advanced Tools-Internet Explorer. Also restore the default settings in "IE Settings" in Advanced Tools-Internet Explorer.

Run a complete scan and you will finally get rid of this spyware once and for all.

It worked for me.
