While I have not had the pleasure of dealing with this particular pest, the two following web sites have proven to be quite helpful:
what I do is use rootkitrevealer and autruns from sysinternals to identify startup programs and hidden items on my systems and then cross reference them to the BHO and startup items list provided by When I have completed my cross reference list of pest processes/services and clsids I go into safe mode and methodically wipe them out. Once you have done that you can run spybot search and destroy, MS antispy, and adaware SE, as well as a scan using an updated AV scanner (I use symantec but you can use whatever) These four programs will, when used sequentially, eliminate everything I have heard of if you have disabled the rootkit first.

This is a time intensive, low duty cycle task, bring a book.
