I'm sorry to say that but I would reinstall the system, just to be sure it's clean. I also have an extensa laptop and there is an Acer software responsible for the Fn and addon buttons. Probably it got corrupted by the spyware or while trying to remove it. Maybe you used 'hijackthis' and removed a service responsible for the acer button software.
