Turn off System Restore to start with - Download Malware Bytes, Spybot S&D, and Super Antispyware - run them in full scan modes, remove every thing they find. ( links in my Sig)

Malware bytes on its own will get some but generally not all.

Note, this will take several hours to run - DONT be tempted to do quick scans they will miss infections.
