Note: I have not read either in too much detail so not 100% sure.

Last resort you could do a clean install of Windows

If possible do as much cleaning/scanning as you can in safe mode, also disconnect from the internet whilst doing it.

A system restore to a pre-virus state can also help - it won't get rid of the virus files, but it can remove the registry entries that cause it to start up.

If you're really struggling there are forums set up specifically to help people get rid of viruses - I'd suggest signing up to one of those and asking for help. I had a particularly nasty virus some time ago on an old PC that seemed impossible to get rid of - signed up to one of these forums and they helped me get rid of it within a couple of hours.
