Run these tools;
Download and run this tool and follow the prompts:
Flash_Disinfector will also crate a harmless autorun.inf folder in each partition to stop the spread.
Please download ComboFix by sUBs:

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply by pasting it in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.
MalwareBytes might get it too,(another scanner you can try)
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop. check for Updates before scanning.

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

As Advised by rpggamergirl Flash disinfector followed by Combofix should take good care of this one.
