Your anti-malware software "not doing squat" is a good thing, and can probably be chalked up to safe browsing habits.
I suppose that took 15 more seconds than typing "Google it". Enough "Google it" people!

Prolly the best and most through out there but is the most resource intensive
This is the the one i always install on customer computers once there totally clean works really well
Online virus scanners:
Very handy always worth running
They have a really in depth active scanner - does take a while
Other tools worth having in the aresnal:
BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU RUN THIS BECAUSE IT CAN RENDER A MACHINE UNBOOTABLE!!! Hijackthis is not for beginners but can show you infections and bits and pieces to remove manually that got left behind
Smit fraud remover aka spyware sheriff,spyassasin,winhound,etc...
Fixes registry issues and does in depth cleanup a must after cleaning any kind of infection
Thats all i can really think of at the moment there are tons more on my pen drive but these are the most popular and the ones i swear by. Like i said theres an art to cleaning a machine, and no one scanner/cleaner/blocker removes and prevents everything out there. Sorry for such a long post but if anyone has any questions feel free to pm me, always here to help.
