Spybot

RegSeeker

Spybot will kill the spyware (use the update feature before scanning)
RegSeeker will clean and "efficientize" the registry

Reboot into Safe Mode (F8 key during bootup) and run ScanDisk
reboot into Safe Mode and run Disk Defragmenter

Welcome. You'll love it even more after you do the defragment.
