Try using an alternate Malware remover such as MalwareBytes (from malwarebytes.org) or SpyBot (spybot.com)

Otherwise, you can try the following removal instructions

---------------WARNING---------------------------
Modification of Registry Setting involved
Proceed AT YOUR OWN RISK
----------------------------------------------------------
please check the following entries in the Registry, and directly delete the spyware-related registry entries if found.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \RunServicesOnce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft \Windows\ CurrentVersion
Explorer/ShellFolders Startup="C:\windows/start menu/programs\startup

2. It is possibly a way to load the "Trojan.Win32.Agent2.cmsa" malicious programs, by hiding within the system WIN.INI file and the strings "run=" and "load=", so this must be carefully checked.

3. Clean up “IE Temporary File folder” where the original carrier of spyware threats is likely stored.

if it is in the restore files I would suggest you turn off system restore, scan and remove it, then turn it back on
