If you are able to delete it, do so in safe mode with system restore disabled.  Disable system restore: start button , my computer, right click, properties, tsystem restore tab, turn off sytem restore. Reboot and and tap f8 repeatedly during boot up this will bring you to the safe mode option, select open in safe mode, find and delete. reboot and enable system restore.

Another user with websiteviewer.  Try running this program:


It should help you remove websiteviewer and others.  Then run HijackThis as mentioned by others and fix any found to be bad in that hijackthis.de site.  If you are unsure, get it analyzed first and save the log.  Then give us the link to that saved log.
