Try Spybot Search and Destroy (it is free, beware of imitators).
Install it in Safe Mode with networking.
Update it, immunize.
Use Advanced Mode, Tools Tab, Check ActiveX and BHOs in the Right window. Then Use the list in the left column to view BHO's and ActiveX. You can then click on the display to see what installed it and use the interface to delete harmful entries.

Check the Startup programs and delete or uncheck any suspicious entries.

Then allow Spybot to check for problems.
Then Fix selected problems.
After Spybot completes, Run your AV again.
You may also want to consider downloading and using Autoruns, Google any suspicious entries and delete the hostile ones.
One source for Spybot.

Use the Download now button.
