Default Trojan Help


I have just recovered from a trojan that was somehow installed on my comutper. I believe that I deleted all the infected files. I ran AVG Anti-Virus and got rid of all the files that showed up. I also ran a-squared. There were some files that installed and got put into my windows startup. I disabled them from starting up in msconfig, but how do I remove those startup files from my computer? Also, whenever I open up Firefox there is always this pop up that pops up from Internet Explorer and I have my pop up blocker set to high and I used an ad-aware program, but still it pops-up. Also, is there any other steps I should take to fully remove all bad files. Also, now I can't save log files in Hijackthis, it will run but won't save log files. I don't know what to do. Any help is apreciated, I can't believe people actually like giving people viruses and such, how is that fun, play a game or something instead, or even better go get a life.

Wow, system restore just saved my life. I am all good and fixed up just as if I never got the trojan.
