Ok, I can see all the obvious solutiosn have been posted, so howbout this one:
- Create a whitelist of addresses you actually need to visit (neowin.net), then if there is any missed malware, it ain't going NOWHERE!

Ideally you make a full back up (I'd use acronis true image) before being infected.
Once your pc infected (if this happen), you restore the back up.

Run a utility that you boot off of that can scan the system without it being loaded.
Then hit it with multiple products, some are better than other's with specific types of infections.
Scan for Root Kits - Karpasky tddk
Don't forget to do the browser reset option in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome.
And still check for any unusually add-ons installed in the browsers.
Double check the default home page / search engine.
The other root is complete nuke and reload everything.
Tweaking.Com Windows Repair is a great utility to try and reset to windows defaults - hosts, networking components, windows update, and much more. http://www.tweaking....all_in_one.html
Just be very careful what options you choose, example reseting file permission's and removing hidden attribute from non-system files.
It shows up a lot of hidden by default folders, that are not system files.

Format the computer and reinstall the OS.
It's the most effective way of removing it - you didn't ask for the least destructive way.
