The free copy of Malwarebytes works good. Had problems with this comp and the tech guy I emailed at Microsoft reccomended it. it grabbed and removed stuff that the other two I use didn't find.

if it quarantined it should be being held within a program that caught it. so go in the program that found it and go to the quarantine option/tab and remove/delete it



as for programs to use in teh future, i run spybot and malewarebytes on my computer with AVG anti-virus and ad-aware. all free downloads off www.download.com

Malewarebytes found stuff that spybot and superantivirus couldn't. one item was the downloader worm, that bombards your comp with continuous pop-ups. makes your pop-up blocker settings irrelevant. Bad worm.

Spybot, Malwarebytes and Adaware. Open Windows in safe mode and run them. Run them multiple times and set them to run at startup if you can (look in the settings). They don't have to run at every startup but it helps to get them running before the spyware gets started.

I used the malwarebytes trial download from download.com and it only cleans so many for free, then they want you to pay for the actual software. It's only $22 so thats still pretty cheap.
