I agree ccleaner is awesome for cleaning a pc of unnecessary files. It should also get rid of any stray registry entrees left behind by the virus.
You should also defrag your hardrive to speed it back up.

I do feel like an idiot for clicking on the pop up in the first place. However, I am not that familiar with the anti-virus software here and thought it was a routine scan being performed. (Especially since my computer has been running slow - hence the reason that I am looking for performance software to speed up my pc). Furthermore, I am fairly knowledgeable with computers, but you guys on here would definitely run circles around me. I definitely learned a valuable lesson on this one. I will never click on a pop up again, even if the pop up says "click here to receive the new Cobra Island 7 packs".
Thanks again to all whom have helped me in this thread. Without you guys, I would have lost my pc for sure. God bless all of you!
On a lighter note, I am steel laughing about ones suggestion of dumping a cup of coffee on the pc - it did cross my mind!

glad to hear you got it all sorted out man!
getting a virus blows, but nothing worse than getting one on a work comp!
In the end, you'll see my name carved in stone...
