    You may need to turn off 'system restore' before you delete it

    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    i think the remnants of the spyware is still somwhere inside ur comp, possibly within system restore.
    use Giant AntiSpyware to scan ur comp, u might have better results.

    u need to clear out all the downloaded program files: tools > internet options > settings button > view objects. Delete anything suspicious in there (or all of them...you can always dl them again). Delete all temp internet files too.

    Also, you should check your hosts file and make sure there are no added ips in there.
    c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts <---location..open in notepad.

    I'd try vx2finder and cwshredder. Also, get regcleaner to remove items from startup.
