I had a similar virus, and my friend gave me the following advice.
If you can, boot in safe mode and download the following programs:
Search and Destroy
Install those programs, and then reboot in safe mode and run them in that order.
I also use Avast - Free and better than most of the programs you pay for.
The Virus is likely in your system's memory so that you can only remove it upon booting up - as mentioned above do a boot-time scan with Avast and it should find it - keep Avast running and these malware programs will not bother you again - I've been using it for years now.
