I was surfing the web yesterday when I got a message that said your webpage says your PC is infected by Trojans. I didn't take it too seriously at the time, as often you get these messages and it's just some company trying to get you to sign up to their anti-virus software.
However, as a precaution I ran AntiVir, MSRT and SUPERAntiSpyware. The first two found nothing, but the latter found and removed Trojan agent gen cryptor.
This morning I tried to download escan. Unfortunately to download that removed SUPERAntiSpyware. Even worse when I rebooted to install escan properly my PC would not start up, so I had to start it up in safe mode and uninstall escan.
I then reinstalled SUPERAntiSpyware and it found Worm Mytob variant.
Hopefully SUPERAntiSpyware has removed the Trojan agent and Worm Mytob, but how can I be sure that all worms and Trojans have been removed.
Any advice would be very very gratefully received.

Download and run Spybot Search & Destroy.
Make sure when you have installed it you update the detection rules via the interface.
