I would assume a virus scanner could clean that up for you. Do you have one?

Dealing with it manually can be tedious, assuming you can find a removal procedure

or get a bigger hard drive

use ccleaner to clean up all your temporary files.
Next, use combo fix heres a guide http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix
then when your done. Post a log using hijack this , so we can make sure its all gone.
Then use ccleaner again to clean up the leftovers.

Nuke your hard drive and then start from scratch.

It's the only way to be sure.
