I helped do some Spring Autumn cleaning on a PC today. (To protect the innocent, I won't say whose, just that it wasn't mine.) Thanks to Robert's help (it was he who pointed me in the right direction after reading about the symptoms), we used MalwareBytes and let it run. The program removed all sorts of rubbish, including:

Rogue.Antivirus
Rogue.Antivirus2008
Rogue.AntivirusXP
Rogue.AntivirusXP2008
Rogue.Multiple
Rootkit.Agent
Trojan.Agent
Trojan.BHO
Trojan.Downloader
Trojan.FakeAlert

All this on a PC that is protected by an up-to-date Mcaffee Virusscan. Sigh.
